Information Overload is a funny thing. We can all relate to it because it annoys each and every one of us. I’m willing to bet that in the past month, 90% of the people reading this have clenched their fists, thrown their arms into the sky, and shouted “WHERE THE $&@# IS ________!?” Or at least you thought about it.

A couple of weeks ago, I found a great video posted on a blog. It was concise, informative, and funny; the urge to share the video prevailed! Without thought, I resorted to the all too familiar methods of sharing that most of us use in this ‘connected age’: emailing the link to one colleague, and instant messaging to another.
