It seems as if we're awash in information. From the moment we wake until we turn off our phones at night, we are bombarded with images, messages, news and information from a confounding number of sources. The entirety of the world's collected facts, seemingly left unadulterated only for us to interpret and justify, never feels more than a few taps away.
