IORG IORG IORG – conference around the corner!

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Wow.  What a month.  I can’t believe it has been almost a month since my last blog post.  Sorry about that, but between ClearContext and IORG (with a few tennis matches thrown in, some epic Wimbledon to watch, and the fourth of July!) I’ve been too swamped to even think about it.

But there’s so much to write about.  Most importantly, we’re almost ready for the IORG Conference on Tuesday, July 15.  I’m very excited about the group we have attending the conference.  The group includes some of the top minds in academic and corporate research of information overload, a lot of software execs on the leading edge of technology to combat information overload, and a number of analysts, authors, and businesspeople who are focused on studying, analyzing, and addressing the challenges of information overload faced by both individuals and corporations.

We’ll have a lot of Information Overload Research Group news in the next week or two that I can’t wait to share with you.  A lot of great people and companies are rallying around IORG – there’s no question that there’s an intense need for a group like this.  As we continue to expand our membership, we’ll be well positioned to facilitate the types of collaborations between university researchers, corporate researchers, software and other solution providers, and end-users that will lead to solutions that really work.  I can’t wait to get moving.

And the coverage about IORG continues to be great.  Here are a couple of recent pieces in the Wall Street Journal by Gordon Crovitz and USA Today Tech Blog by Jon Swartz.  Hope to meet some of you on Tuesday in New York!
