Information overload – some personal actions

I attended a conference, Overloaded 2012, last week in San Francisco. Here’s a summary from one of the directors of the Information Overload Research Group (IORG). IORG is small, but addressing deep issues of how constant information deluges flows affect our working and thinking.
My “immediate action” conclusion was to start using #hashtags in my email. Examples: #invite, #meet #teach (for messages to colleagues about teaching). Also to provide longer subject lines in my emails – “6 words” is one suggestion.
And, I’ll take a look at a book by Jonathan Spira, an IORG director, who I’ve talked with but never met. Overload! book by Jonathan Spira
