Information Overload Is Not Unique To Digital Age

Information Overload Is Not Unique To Digital Age | Curating Project | Scoop.it
It is a constant complaint: We're choking on information. The flood of data on the Web has reached mind boggling proportions, and it shows no signs of stopping. But wait, says Harvard professor Ann Blair -- this is not a new condition. It's been part of the human experience for centuries.
Leo Both's insight:

Let’s consider seven habits of content creation that would make Klaus Biesenbach proud. Continue reading →

Evaluating internet information | University Libraries | Virginia Tech

Leo Both's insight:

This is a great reference tool to determine how we can trust the information generated on the internet.
