A month or so ago I noticed the Information Overload Research Group
announced their formation.. with an interesting mix of members:
They're having the first conference in NYC in a few weeks and I wondered if
anyone here was planning on attending?
I'm not affiliated at all, but here's info on the conference:
Information Overload Research Group Inaugural Event
July 15, 2008 - The Penn Club, New York City
A day of high-level interaction, knowledge sharing, and learning about the
problem of Information Overload.
- What are the smartest and most experienced companies doing today to
combat Information Overload?
- What does the problem of Information Overload cost companies?
- What are possible solutions?
I looked at everything and is it me or is "Basex" a little overly
represented in the conference? Also, the membership looks very
academic (sorry Jeremy). Yes, there are corps, but it looks like the
research/labs sides of huge corps.
The Penn Club is nice though. My previous employer did a lot of our
"off-sites" there b/c it is cheap to Univ of Penn alums and we had

yeah, I'm also a little suss on Basex here.. but *am* interested in
this forum, particularly to see the impact this might have on the
respective companies and researchers working with IxD.. just bummed
that I cannot get to it.
What's up with "Basex"? from their website:
"Basex, a trusted advisor to knowledge economy decision makers,* is* the
recognized expert in Collaborative Business Environments, the intersection
of content, knowledge sharing, and collaboration within the enterprise."
Who are these guys? Does anyone use them for their projects?
