To satisfice means to optimize for all costs including the cost of optimization and information gathering.
In practice it is discovering a solution that is good enough, quickly enough that you can get on with your life.
If you don't take into account the cost of information gathering you can spend hundreds of hours reading Amazon reviews, and ultimately still not buy the best Thai cookbook.
Meanwhile if you'd bought the cookbook, you could already be eating tasty thai food.
The whole thing seems directly correlated to Knuth's saw about premature optimization being the root of all kinds of evil.
The act of optimization itself must be itself optimized.
