Marshall McLuhan:
there is in IBM, for example, a phrase:
"information overload produces pattern recognition."
when you give people too much information, they instantly resort to pattern recognition. --to structuring the experience.
pattern recognition : one of the peculiar new awarenesses of our time.

Darin R. McClure:
The internet is not a #searching problem, it is a #sorting problem.
