Example Citation:
"Some Internet users suffer from information overload. 'If 'the medium is the message,' then the message of the Internet foretells of either great strides in the coordination of human efforts or of an information overload rivaling the confusion associated with the Tower of Babel,' says Jaffe. That translates into hours spent aimlessly going from one Web site to another without really focusing on anything - known as Dorito Syndrome."
—Dina Shiloh, "Hooked on the Net," The Jerusalem Post, June 12, 1998
