They are over estimating the impact

of all the informtion. Sure it is increasing, but a lot of the new information will turn out to not be relevant to anything important.

If you look at the science literature, alot is minutae, that adds little, or is information heading down a wrong solution path. There are also questions about the validity of all of this new information people are creating.

Last, there is a limit to the amount of information a human can take advantage of.

Bottom line, there is no proof of a linear correlation between information and human condition at the higher levels of information, and there are a lot of reasons to think that the amount of information will not continue to increase at the same rate.
