If we could only catch up with the wave of information, we feel, we would at last be in the NOW… It seems as if to digest and comprehend them in their totality would amount to having reality on tap, as if from a fantastic media control room capable of monitoring everything, everywhere, all at the same time. It’s as if all the Facebook updates, Twitter streams, email messages, and live streamed video could combine to create a total picture of our true personal status… at any given moment.  — Douglas Rushkoff, Present Shock
