The problems of information overload

Have you noticed this? Whenever you write a very long blog in LJ, you never get people to comment on it. And then you wonder what might be the reason. People around are getting so busy that they hardly read all the mails (let alone the spams) in their own mailbox.

I recently gave a seminar on this topic in my class, and people were shell-shocked to hear that new word – infoglut. But it didn't take them much time to realize that they were going through the problem themselves.

And to wind it up, tell me one thing. How many MB's of Pdf's and other files do you have in your systems? And how much of it have you digested? 10% or more is really great…

Any one out there with a solution?
