It's easy to consume, not necessarily passively, but extraneously... I notice it most when I visit one of those image blogs with the never-ending scroll bar, or when reading — it's even more difficult to put the thing down when it's actually informative, useful.

A technocratic society has the goal of: Producing optimum quality goods and services at the lowest possible energy cost, and distributing the maximum amount of goods and services to everyone. Our broken economy has so far prevented this from being possible. The constant need for money has forced producers to continually produce poor quality...
