BBC News - A Point of View: Does more information mean we know less?

An interesting article - some of which I can agree with (taking on more and more information does not necessarily make us more knowledgeable). I think the state of your mind can influence what information you are able to absorb and make sense of. Maybe rather than talk about 'fasting' the brain the author could have used the concept of 'reflection', i.e. a calm period where you give the brain an opportunity to organise its thoughts.
