Information Overload? Don't Panic!

Information Overload? Don't Panic! | Social media and education | Scoop.it

I selected this post today from my fellow curator's collection gdecugis, (love what he had to say below).  I personally think it's one of the best pieces I've seen so far on this subject.

 

We're all dealing with this issue and sometimes when you see it articulated as Brian Solis has done not only is it comforting but widens your perspective which is the doorway to finding solutions.

 

Excerpt:

 

At a time where some are thinking we urgently need an information diet, Brian Solis puts things in perspective: don't panic!

 

What he describes on PandoDaily as "the fallacy of Information Overload" is the fact that while we all seem lost at one point or another because our world is changed by the social media revolution, it's both inevitable and something mankind will adapt to.

 

This post is a great summary of the different ways we are affected and why we shouldn't try to move back to the previous state. But work on improving our filters.

 

Curation, anyone?

I reviewed the book, Information Diet,yesterday - http://www.bethkanter.org/info-diet/ it is excellent. He talks about curation as part of the solution, although it is framed as information literacy
