Information Overload

Slashdot discusses “information obesity” as discussed in this SMH article: “Another day in the office, which, according to one recent study, consists of handling 46 phone calls, 25 emails, 16 voicemails, 23 items of post, eight inter-office memos, 16 faxes and nine mobile phone calls. While that sounds scary, its even more alarming to think that those figures – taken from a 2000 survey of companies employing between 100 and 499 staff conducted by Pitney Bowes in partnership with the US-based forecaster the Institute for the Future – are likely to have risen.” Scary! And an opportunity for things like Info Aggregators and Digital Dashboards – what we need is “Topsight”.
