Reducing Information Pollution
The Information Overload Research Group’s Overloaded 2012 un-conference, a lively one-day gathering of information overload crusaders from a diversity of domains, was a complete success. Two dozen attendees spanning academic, industry, consulting, analyst and public sector backgrounds came together, exchanged research results, viewpoints and opinions, and formed friendships and plans for future cooperation.
We heard two interesting keynotes: Prof. David Levy of the University of Washington spoke about “Educating for Acceleration and Overload”, and Jonathan Spira, IORG’s VP of research and CEO of Basex, shared new research findings on Information Overload.
This kind of informal meeting of like minds is clearly working, and we plan to hold similar events once or twice a year in various locations. If you missed this one, we hope to see you in the next!
