We have made it to our first catch-up week, which is a good time to check in and see how you are doing. What do you think so far? What has been the best part so far? And the worst? Suggestions are always welcome.
Use this week to revisit any of the previous activities – it is never too late. Go back and check out the comments on the posts. There have been some great discussions there. If you don’t want to miss any future comments subscribe to the RSS feed for the comments at the bottom of this page.
And finally something that we can all relate to-information overload. Technologist Clay Shirky argues that information overload isn’t the problem that it is made out to be: it’s really a failure of information filters. Shirky said that the internet has made it easier and cheaper for publishers to broadcast information—so now the onus is on the consumer to filter out the noise.
