The Cure For Information Overload

We all have much more information from many more sources than we have ever had before. It matters little what industry or job function we are in; we are all facing information overload, and it is increasing moment by moment. The big question is, "How do we handle the information overload that we all experience?" Or perhaps better put, "How do we handle all the information available to us, without simply ignoring large amounts of information, so that we do not experience information overload?"

This challenge can be met in several different ways. Many of those ways are through using various Personal Knowledge Management or Personal Learning Environment tools. There are a multitude of tools available to help an individual capture and categorize the information available to them. Of course many of these tools are also available to organizations. However, for the purpose of this ongoing discussion over the coming days and weeks, we will focus on what an individual can do to manage his or her knowledge acquisition / learning.
