Started reading The Paradox of Choice; Why More is Less, by Barry Schwartz
When people have no choice, life is almost unbearable. As the number of available choices increases, as it has in our consumer culture, the autonomy, control, and liberation this variety brings are powerful and positive. But as the number of choices keeps growing, negative aspects of having a multitude of options begin to appear. As the number of choices grows further, the negatives escalate until we become overloaded. At this point, choice no longer liberates, but debilitates. It might even be said to tyrannize. -- pg. 2 (I said I just started)
Does the ever expanding blogosphere help reduce this tyranny by filtering out the choices or does the cacophony of voices overload us? Or does it do both?
