Default Are We All Digitally OCD Now?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2042340,00.html' target='_blank'>http://www.time.com/time/magazine/a...2042340,00.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"We are all OCD now. We do these things not just because digital filing gives us the satisfaction of cleaning without the unpleasant feeling of getting up from our chairs. It's because we're constantly confronting the onslaught of information, and our brains are trying to make patterns out of the randomness. We believe that if we just finish a list of every movie we want to see, we can finish that task, despite the fact that Rob Schneider is going to make more films."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1296604334.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p><em>Photo Credit: <a href="http://www.gizmodo.com" target="_blank">Gizmodo</a></em></p><p>This is a humour column, but there's some truth to the idea that sometimes we spend more time organizing and fretting away over the details of our digital collections than actually enjoying them. However, unlike the author of this column, I've always been detail-oriented and I appreciate creating digital order from digital chaos...it's almost soothing to me to see things organized properly. I don't think I could ever embrace digital chaos the way the author is suggesting - could you?</p>
