E-mail is not anymore a necessary channel

In the first week of IORGLiveMonth that you can watch here http://bit.ly/iorglivemonth from Day 1 to 7 you can see as common denominator one basic concept: e-mail is not anymore a necessary tool to do our job.

On the contrary, learning to collaborate using other channels will definitively help us becoming more productive, spending less time and drastically reducing information overload.

LeleIORGMonth – Each day a new Live broadcast to fight IO

It’s been a while I’m not using e-mails, 5 years since July 2013 and even before I started gladly advocating different forms of collaboration to avoid overused channels.

That’s where I got to meet IORG, Nathan Zeldes and all great professionals and researchers that with me share the same disappointment around the way we naturally ended up communicating between each other.

I feel the main driver of it, is a lack of education from our institutions and corporates. Nobody told us that mobile phone notifications were addictive and that our internal chemical reactions (see dopamine) is playing with us in a way that keeps us there, waiting for the next stimulus to come.

New LinkedIn Group presence for IORG

Effective January 2018 the LinkedIn group Information Overload Network has been renamed to Information Overload Research Group.

This reflects the de facto situation where ION has been nurtured for the last few years by the directors of the off-LinkedIn IORG non-profit, and will allow us to focus the people and activities related to Information Overload mitigation under one coherent “umbrella”.

You are all welcome to join the group, which will continue in its activity to share and promote knowledge about information overload and its mitigation.
