My friend Don K posted an article on Facebook and I would like to share this article with you.
I agree. Looking at myself:
- at least 2 email addresses I check privately
- 1 email at work
- Search Food
- Volker’s blurb
And, if that was not enough, what about things like twitter or flickr. Should I or shouldn’t I? Do RSS Feed count? If so, add another 10 I read regularly and at least 10 on top occasionally. No wonder people complain about information overload. I of course forgot my personal homepage, too.
Then, the question is, do homepages count as web services? Somewhat I think yes, because you would want to update it as it is a personal profile on the web, isn’t it?
Be selective, I guess, is the way forward. Keep it simple. Focus on what you really need instead of trying to get as much information as possible.
As an example. The other day I registered for ALL newsletters from an US online magazine, Media Post. Then I got 20 emails a day and now cut it down to the 3 most important newsletters. You have to be very selective – by the way, good newsletters they are.
