Are you drowning in information?
"How to Deal with Information Overload: Part I" by: Damon Hedman
"There is more information online than any one person can ever consume, and it’s only going to get worse."
Damon rightly points out that whenever we search for information we find far too many links and that makes our choices difficult. His sensible advice is: “Only read information that is relevant to the problem at hand.” Isn’t this the goal and ambition of all Internet users?
However, the challenge here is how quickly we can find out and decide what is relevant. From personal experience I can say that summaries and keywords are very helpful tools in quickly distinguishing what may be of interest to us or just unnecessary. Summaries offer a practical shortcut to finding out if information is relevant or of no use.
