The amount of data thrown at is enormous. Thanks to cheap internet and publishing platform. We are all artists, creators, authors, and painters. The sad part of it is, many quality creators lose to garbage. I call poor contents, be it a book, blog or music as garbage.
Some people put the soul in creation while others just do it because it is cool and they can.
The biggest problem for me is the filtering. I have purchased a dozen books on internet recommendations and most are garbage. After reading 10-15 pages, I am done. Same is the case with podcasts and Netflix. The hype machines take over the web.
Our lifetime is limited so is our time and money. It hurts being cheated.
