Why do you feel overwhelmed by information?
Gosh, disparate sources is one of my favorite phrases. Additionally, the thought is shhhharp. I also like to say "converging memes," "freely associated, disjointed vignettes," and "conflict of information." I've got others.
"Today's knowledge workers are drowning in the sea of data streaming at them from disparate sources. It has taken the Internet to bring together content from television, radio, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, books, and miscellaneous other publications and papers."
