ISTD 2013, Book Still The book investigates the concept of information overconsumption. In the 21st century, we are bombarded with vast amounts of information each day as a consequence of the ever-growing digital age. Prior to the introduction of the web, material was harder to source; therefore individuals were more selective over what information they choose to read. This contrast in how we read information today as apposed to pre-digital times inspired me into investigating the processes of navigation and filtering through information on-screen. This book is therefore an outcome of my research and development shown in a publication that represents the day-to-day journey of information consumption that an average person may encounter while browsing online. It expresses how a quick look on Facebook or a browse on YouTube can turn into hours of procrastination or overconsumption of immaterial knowledge. Read Less

ISTD 2013, Book Still

The book investigates the concept of information 
overconsumption. In the 21st century, we are 
bombarded with vast amounts of information each day 
as a consequence of the ever-growing digital age. Prior 
to the introduction of the web, material was harder to 
source; therefore individuals were more selective over 
what information they choose to read. This contrast in 
how we read information today as apposed to pre-digital 
times inspired me into investigating the processes of
navigation and filtering through information on-screen. 
This book is therefore an outcome of my research and 
development shown in a publication that represents the
day-to-day journey of information consumption that an 
average person may encounter while browsing online. 
It expresses how a quick look on Facebook or a browse 
on YouTube can turn into hours of procrastination or 
overconsumption of immaterial knowledge.
