Two articles I read this weekend made me laugh, and rue at my own state. First, this piece in the Washington Post (via Gene) has one guy consume media such as TV, blogs, radio and all the rest for 24 hours. Information overload, and I can feel that pain. I’m addicted to news and information. I once stayed in an ashram in India for over a week, in the middle of nowhere. No read, no talking – just meditation. 10 hours a day. Half the time all I could think about was that another 9/11 could have happened and I’d have no clue.
And then there’s communication overload. I have 5 ‘work related’ email accounts plus other gmail accounts, and a blackberry. On top of that is Facebook, where people I don’t know keep trying to add me. Though my problems are not as bad as for Michael Arrington of Techcrunch. But for a fact there’s a ton of email I have to reply to and the list keeps getting longer every day. How I’d also like to declare ‘email bankruptcy’ and delete the entire inbox and start again. Sigh.
