Inspired by the total integration of modern media, Modern Matter's latest issue, About Now, looks at the juxtapositions created by this information overload: of smart and dumb, new and old, silly and serious, and analogue and digital. In an age in which everything has virality, issue 10 — traditionally a bumper anniversary edition for magazines — documents a new preoccupation with volume as virtue.
