We are awash in information: faxes, e-mail, news, infotainment, and advertising overwhelm us even as CEOs and politicians herald the dawn of a glorious and profitable Information Age. Media scholar and cyber-pundit David Shank deftly dismantles all the hype and exposes the unsettling impact of information overload, or data smog, on our individual well-being (emotional and physical) and on our society at large. This myth-shattering manifesto also outlines a welter of practical strategies for minimizing data smog's polluting effects - from curtailing junkmail and telephone sales pitches to instituting all-out "data fasts."
