    • How do we know when the amount of digital information now exceeds 281 gigabytes?
    • How do we know when we have to separate "truth" from outright false information and myriad shades of truth?
    • How do we know what to know next when we can pursue seemingly infinite paths to knowing more about the areas of our careers?
