Web 2.0 feeds Infovores

The Wall Street Journal has a very interesting article about people's addictions to the Internet. Comparing our fascination with the novel and new information on the Internet with the fascination of cats with laser pointers, I could not help but to think that Web 2.0 has only strengthened this. Maintainers of websites can only generate content a a certain rate, but with Web 2.0 style communities generating content at an incredible rate, its very easy to see how infovores and similar folk seem to never log off the Internet.
