Subject: Infoglut synonyms?
Does anyone have any synonyms for "infoglut"?
I am putting together a tally of my regular reading and I need a word to describe it. Also, I need a
word for a person who takes in all that information. I usually call myself an "infopig" but that
suggests some kind of blissful pleasure involved with wallowing in all the information. Maybe
"infoslave" would be better.
By the way, below is the list of my serious regular incoming information (so far). I used to have
more, but I eliminated some lists and magazines that didn't have value. Also, the list does not
include information sources that are primarily entertainment, press releases, junk mail, or when I
find the New York Post in a cab (which, if you hear them tell it, is the only way most people ever
read the Post).
I am certain that my list is short compared to some subscribers to this list.
