The environment of information affluence and media convergence characteristic of our time is constructing a comprehensive living and knowing habitat that induces the framing of life issues in terms of data availability and the concomitant data permutations this encourages. It also promotes the understanding of knowledge as data assembled into meaningful categories and structures by algorithmic reasoning and statistical techniques. Placed in a wider historical purview, these trends attest to the prominence which cognition qua computation is acquiring and the concomitant retraction of perception as an axial principle of everyday conduct tied to palpable reality and situated encounters.
