So, I’ve been doing some research on information retrieval, visualization, social navigation, blahblahblah.
And one of the recurrent themes is that we are awash in information, and need tools to find the good stuff.
And it made me think. My problem isn’t finding the good stuff. The web has inundated me with good stuff. There’s so much good stuff, I don’t know what to do with it. Trying to do simple research on a topic is overwhelming.
How do I cope with this embarrassment of riches?
