Infovores & Ignotarians

In the world of flesh, there are those who consume it and those who do not. The carnivores and the vegetarians.

What about the world of information? There are those who consume it and those who do not. The infovores and the ignotarians. The term “Infovore” describes a person who indulges in, even desires, information consumption (hat tip FutureLab). What is the opposite of an infovore? By definition, its one who limits the intake of information, like a vegetarian limits meat consumption. These people might be referred to as Ignotarians.

So who is winning out there in the world of the web (errr…probably some selection bias here)? The Infovores or the Ignotarians? Check out this GoogleFight to discover: Infovores vs. Ignotarians.
