Today, more mediated information is available to more people than at any other time in human history. New and revitalized sense-making strategies multiply in response to the challenges of "cutting through the clutter" of competing narratives and taming the avalanche of information. Data miners, "sentiment analysts," and decision markets offer to help bodies of data "speak for themselves"―making sense of their own patterns so we don’t have to. Neuromarketers and body language experts promise to peer behind people’s words to see what their brains are really thinking and feeling. New forms of information processing promise to displace the need for expertise and even comprehension―at least for those with access to the data.

Infoglut explores the connections between these wide-ranging sense-making strategies for an era of information overload and "big data," and the new forms of control they enable. Andrejevic critiques the popular embrace of deconstructive debunkery, calling into question the post-truth, post-narrative, and post-comprehension politics it underwrites, and tracing a way beyond them.

Mark Andrejevic's compelling new book is an impressive survey of the impact of big data on domains extending from bodies and brains to policing, marketing, and sentiment analysis. As it documents the shift from comprehension to correlation, Infoglut raises disturbing questions regarding new operations of power and control in a world of algorithms. Jodi Dean, author of Democracy and Other Neoliberal Fantasies. Andrejevic advances a common claim that people have more information than they can process.

Overall,the book was able to prove that the digital era is changing the way we think (. rise of conspiracy theories) but was swamped by all the critical and cultural studies jargon. Shelves: social-political, business. I read this book a few years ago and found it to be insightful. In the last year (2016), I found myself recalling this book more and more often. Today it seems all the more pertinent while working online.

This technique is ultimately productive for uncovering surprising symmetries and points of convergence. Readers often discover that things they had assumed to be separate-like Glenn Beck, affect theory, and big data engines-are actually connected by strands of correlational thought (2013, 132).

Great book!

As U.S. news organizations are enticed to busily chase distractions and, due to deep cuts in the industry, are forced to forego the more complicated stories of how longstanding public policies are being dismantled, this book is more relevant than ever.
