Quote from Herb Simon from a HN comment:

"In an information-rich world, the wealth of means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it. (Simon 1971)"
