Computerworld on Information Overload

When I was contacted by a journalist writing an article for Computerworld on information overload, I was delighted to participate.

Not only did Mary Brandel get to the essence of the issue in her article published this morning, she captured exactly what I was trying to get across to her when being interviewed. This was particularly refreshing since that often isn’t the case when I’m interviewed or even quoted.

Give it a read if you’re wrestling, like I am, with the siren’s song of all the new communications methods at-our-fingertips from RSS readers, to Twitter, IM, SMS, social networks, FriendFeed and other like aggregators, along with all the other internet-centric offerings seductively calling to us to give them our attention.

    Hi Steve

    Wow – reading that article you seem to have made quite a science of filtering information.

    I am afraid I am much more chaotic no matter how hard I try to organise myself. It seems to me that this would be a great subject for a conference or even a book?

    I guess the trick is working out what is enough as you could do it 24*7? Also how to give up the illusion that you are keeping fully up to date as that could drive you mad?

    Keep up the good work

    Best Regards

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
