Presentation Description

Although the sense of information overload is relatively new to the public, it is a problem long grappled with by scholars and educators. A look at the history of information production and consumption reveals persistent public needs for information content and struggles with information authorities. Recognition of the need, especially, for public participation in production can help us close the gap between available information and public knowledge.
