From a self-admitted fuddy-duddy, relic, throwback, luddite: I worry about the pace and accuracy of this new "information flow." There is no guarantee that at any one time, the relevant data, knowledge, information will be available when needed, nor that the people interacting on it will be best suited to process it and make something useful of it. Given the sheer amount of information out there, and the speed at which it changes and is being "consumed" there is a very real danger of completely erroneous conclusions, passing as "knowledge." This is not to say that we shouldn't participate, but that we should be fully aware of the potential for error.
