Internet's Environmental Crises, Mahalo.com CEO Jason Calacanis Speaks at GNOMEDEX 7.0
Waste is not a problem just facing our "physical" plane, and our natural environment - waste has become a crises of our "mental " plane and our artificial and manufactured environment.
Humans now confront an information overload driven by the explosion of mass media and the Internet. As the explosion has reached epic proportion, the quality of the information has deteriorated and infiltrated the mental landscape of the global audience.
