# Herbert Simon Quote

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, Recipient of Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics and the A.M. Turing Award, The “Nobel Prize of Computer Science”
