There’s a lot of different things in the information overload problem. One I think is that we’ve — culturally, we’ve all developed bad habits with the tools that we have. And two, we send too much email when we don’t need to send email. We send big documents that don’t need to be big documents. We provide so much information these days and we have so many people who work with their brain.
All the information is important. I’m not saying it’s not important but we’re not very good at distributing it and we’re not very good at managing it which of course is the problem. And I think what we need to do is culturally, we need to learn new versions of the bad habits so that we throw away the bad habits and develop better ones. You and I would have this. I mean, if I read every Twitter message that went past me every day, I would do nothing but read Twitter messages and I still wouldn’t read them all. There’s too many.
So we need to learn to pick the things that are important to us. Not to look at email constantly, not to look at Twitter constantly, not to look at the web constantly but to only go and use those things when it’s critical. It’s new habits to learn and it’s very, very hard. And I don’t think I have a solution but we can learn better ways I think.
