This book is about the power of the individual to make a difference and also to change an entire world, whether or not the supposed economic forces are on your side. To thrive in an era that produces and devours information like never before, you need to become more adept at finding, sorting, and absorbing ideas, news, and all kinds of data. The age of the infovore has arrived.
Tyler Cowen, The Age of the Infovore
The Infovores subscriber list has grown substantially in the last few weeks and I have decided to open a twitter account—follow me @ageofinfovores. While I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the rate of growth for what started out as a way to process what I was reading and thinking about, this is still a small operation. There won’t be a large volume of followers to start, but with that small initial group I will be able to be much more attentive to what each of you are sharing and replying on twitter. If you post interesting articles and facts, I am more likely to respond and possibly even incorporate them into a full post.
Think of this newsletter as a lean and hungry start-up, large enough to attract a little attention but not large enough to be responsible for my workers’ health insurance. For those concerned about the well-being of my employees, don’t worry—it’s only me.
Finally I want to personally thank all of you for reading and following the newsletter. There’s never been a better time to be an infovore.
