Educate. Aggregate. Organise - MmIT Journal Article
One of the perennial, if not biggest, problems we all face is not “how do I find information?”, but “where do I store it?” We all too often hear the old saying ‘information overload’
and now I am increasingly coming across the problem of information storage overload. When I say information, I mean everything, Tweets, Google Docs, bookmarks, images, Excel
files, RSS feeds, the whole kit and kaboodle.
The level of the problem varies from person to person and according to how much they engage with technology, from personal photos on their smartphone to confidential patient data in the workplace. Finding a solution can take a lot of time and effort, putting it into practice more so, and getting your organisation to do this is pretty much impossible.
I've written about this problem, that we all face in this month's issue of MmIT Journal which is published quarterly by the Multimedia Information & Technology Group of Cilip.
