Information Diet | Clicks Have Consequences

This is what I mean when I say that “clicks have consequences”: our information diets online have an ethical consequence to our social community. By watching video of the adorable kittens or by reading online that story about the Kardashians, you’re not only doing yourself a disservice, you’re actually telling editors to write more stuff like that, at the expense of other stuff. The ethical consequences of a poor information diet are more direct and immediate than the environmental consequences of eating meat.

Do yourself a favor and read The Information Diet.
