Newsflash

Newsflash!!!  The US Congress is not immune to information overload.  Maybe that is why it seems like it takes forever and day for anything to get done on Capitol Hill.  Well, I am sure there are a few other reasons out there as well, but according to this article in Mashable, a study in the National Journal found that the crush of incoming and ever changing information is a huge issue facing members of Congress. 

Perhaps our elected officials (or their staffers) should take some time out in a couple weeks to attend the online conference being hosted by Basex around Information Overload Awareness Day on Aug. 12th.  While I don’t think the cure to information overload will be created at the online conference, there is a healthy list of experts coming together to share ideas and best practices including the end customers such as Dow Jones, Morgan Stanley, and a CIO from the US Air Force.
