"Too Much Information!" by Tom Valovic
"As a high-tech magazine editor, then analyst, and now editor again, I’ve thought long and hard over the years about the problem of how IT managers or anyone who needs to keep track and make sense of a fast-moving emerging technology can optimally do that."
The “Great Information Hunt” is a witty phrase used by Tom Valovic to describe challenges we face with too much information, too many articles to read, and I may add too many meetings to attend. One way to negotiate the computer power is to apply some common sense in choosing information sources.
A focused approach is to wear the blinkers and give attention to narrow range of topics. But then there is the nagging issue of not knowing what we are missing when we dedicate ourselves to exactingly specialized conversations. Is there a happy medium?
