You feel it… don’t you?
I’m no longer a reader of the NY Times; however, some are. The average daily edition, not Sunday mind you, contains more information than the average 17th century man would have encountered in his entire lifetime.
Stop and think about that.
More information in one day than they would have encountered in a year. 365 times as much!
The minute you post a statistic, it’s outdated. However, here are a few that I could find:
2,218 TV Stations
17,271 Radio Stations
348,159 New Books Published A Year In US/Canada
4.5 Million Tons of Junk Mail (really!)
Remember what it was like growing up?
