Seasoned Nuts Quotable

“In an information-rich world, the wealth of information means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention 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.” – Herbert Simon

“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.” – Susan Sontag

Random Thoughts and Jay’s Poetry

The tortoise jumped into the lake

with dreams of becoming a sea turtle.

He decided to live his life

by the big beats manifesto.

She found his complete

dullness interesting.

I’m a great listener,

really good with empathy vs sympathy

and all that, but I hate people.

Buried deep in the snow,

he hoped his batteries were fresh

in his avalanche beacon.
