Reducing Information Pollution

Invitation to partner with IORG

May 21, 2016 | Posted By Nathan Zeldes

The Information Overload Research Group is seeking organizations wishing to partner with us in pursuing our mission of reducing Information Overload.

If you recognize the importance of this problem, and wish to take an active part in addressing it, read on!

Who we are

IORG, founded in 2008 as a 501(c)6 US non-profit, is dedicated to reducing the Information Overload that devastates the productivity and quality of life of knowledge workers worldwide. We strive to do this by facilitating conversations, collaboration and networking among people who experience information overload, people who study it, and people who are developing solutions to address the problem; and by spreading research-based solutions, including best practices and technologies.

A key strategy in our activity is to bring together people from diverse backgrounds: academics, corporate practitioners, solution vendors, consultants, and analysts. By having them share their different points of view, we create a lively exchange of knowledge and opinion.

Our activity to date had focused on holding annual conferences and online webinars, maintaining a web site (http://iorgforum.org) and maintaining the IO Resource Center, an online reference library of every kind of publication related to the problem. This activity is managed by a volunteer board of directors and steering committee.

What we invite you to do together

At this time, we have concluded that we need to extend our reach and scope of action, and we therefore seek organizations willing to take a part in our activity in whatever manner makes sense, such as:

  • Placing a member with the required insight on our steering committee and board of directors
  • Hosting an IORG conference, providing free attendance and a speaking platform to your employees
  • Exposing your employees to our resources, thinking and solutions
  • Becoming a formal corporate sponsor of IORG, with the attendant exposure
  • Any other ideas are welcome – let’s explore!

If your organization is willing to engage in any of this, please let me know at president@iorgforum.org.

Yours,

Nathan Zeldes

President, the Information Overload Research Group
