Reducing Information Pollution
Work is not what it used to be. Between the constant rings and pings of notifications, and the fear of missing out (FOMO) that follows, information overload is threatening our productivity, our state of mind, and our bottom line. What is this all about? And how can businesses change course?
The Information Overload Research Group (IORG) brings you a virtual event where renowned experts and speakers such as Haim Senior, Dr. Lawrence Ampofo, and Shawn Banerji will offer fresh insights on the science, stories, and solutions for managing information overload at work.
Anyone working to solve the information overload problem, looking for solutions, or wanting to help shape the discussion is welcome to attend. Whether you are a manager, a researcher, an entrepreneur, or a CEO, this is an event that is good for business.
We already have the 3 great speakers listed above lined up, and a detailed agenda and more information will be released shortly.
IORG is made up of researchers, practitioners and technologists from academia, corporations, solution vendors and consultancies. IORG is dedicated to reducing information overload, a problem that diminishes the productivity and quality of life of knowledge workers worldwide. Our diverse members and single focus provide thought leadership and access to cutting-edge ideas, promote collaboration between industry and academia, and help shape the science of combating information overload.

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.
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:
If your organization is willing to engage in any of this, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What a great Information Overload Awareness Day we had this year, thanks to our two speakers, Yoram Kalman and Francis Wade, and special presentation from board member Jonathan Spira. The insights and discussions during our webinar were certainly food for thought.
Our speakers have graciously accepted to make their slides available as well.
