Information anxiety is the topic of my graduate thesis and I'm trying to collect as many examples of it as I can as I begin my research.

 

If you've got any examples, please post 'em!

This particular example makes me feel anxious since I like to keep my gmail inbox at or near zero messages at all times. Seeing an empty inbox gives me a feeling that I'm on top of things and removes the possibility that there might be some overdue work items lingering behind one of the messages.
