 The Honest Truth


Startling Sensational Infobesity



We have all heard about

the global problem relating to obesity.




Now in addition

we have a startling sensational problem

confronting us known as



We might consider that more clearly as

information overload.


This is a problem

just as serious or even more so

than physical obesity.



Consider this:


Dave Coplin

author of two books on

the need to rethink the usage of technology

in the modern world.


Chief Envisioning Officer, Microsoft UK

in the Huffington Post 2014


"Nearly half of the UK's office workers

are suffering from 'Infobesity',

the over-consumption

of information.


He further said:

"We have allowed ourselves

to be overwhelmed by too much information".


we use technology simply

to speed up old ways of working.


It might be much better if

we would fundamentally reimagine

how we use information.


We need to learn how data

can help us connect the dots,

provide context


highlight correlations.



setting the framework, asking the questions,

interrogating the data,

 are the jobs

that only humans can do.


The smart workers of tomorrow

will know when technology can help


when it can't".




Sarah Santacrose


LinkedIn Specialist & Online Presence Mentor

in her blog




“Information overload” (nicknamed Infobesity)

is a term

that was first popularized by Alvin Toffler

in his bestselling 1970 book

Future Shock.


It seems, then, that infobesity

has been around

for a while.


Sarah Santacrose says

we might control it as follows:



spend less time on the

“nice to know” information

& focus on the

“have to know” list.



too often we think

multi-tasking increases our productivity,

but in fact

it creates the opposite result.

Spend parts of the day

disconnected from the online world:

switch off all e-mail, telephones, Web, etc.


Lead by example:

you’re not the only one

who’s suffering from infobesity.

Help others out and don’t overwhelm them

with information, they don’t need.



The honest truth is

that infobesity might well be

as great or even greater problem

than physical obesity.


This may be

startling sensational knowledge

to some

and so

we have listed

some suggested remedies.



I hope that information overload

does not distract you from

this recently updated




I would love to hear your thoughts
I welcome your comments.
