A bit of advice on information intake from Warren Ellis
I subscribe to Warren Ellis's mailing list, Orbital Operations. Once a week or so Warren drops a nugget of info. Nothing too long, but always valuable. This time he dropped this little bit of advice:
The past week I've felt particularly inundated or saturated with information. Sometimes it's too negative or sensationalist. People appending "this" or "this is important" or "signal boost," usually in all caps, seem to clamor for too much attention. None of this is actionable, addressable or meaningful.
But i feel like part of that is that the channels are simply changing on me, so I need to change as well. Fine tune the feed. To paraphrase Steve Jobs, "You're using it wrong."
