Reducing Information Pollution
The Information Overload Awareness Day 2015 event, sponsored by the Information Overload Research Group, is a workplace observance, now in its eighth year, that calls attention to the problem of information overload and how it impacts both individuals and organizations.
This year’s event includes a free 60-minute webinar at 11 a.m. EDT, with several information overload speakers, and is hosted by Jonathan Spira, one of the leading experts in the field and author of “Overload! How Too Much Information Is Hazardous To Your Organization.”

In conjunction with the observance of Information Overload Awareness Day, the Information Overload Research Group issued a Lower the Overload challenge to knowledge workers everywhere.
1) Send only those Emails, IMs, and texts that have to be sent. This includes replies.
2) Only use reply-to-all when absolutely necessary.
3) Cut back on the number of recipients in the “to” and “cc” fields.
4) Resist the urge to forward Email messages if not critical.
We look forward to you joining us for this event, and please forward this to any of your peers that may be interested in participating!
