I read a lot of blogs (or at least i used to). After neglecting my enthusiastic collection of blog links (157) of THE top most readable material on the web for over an year, i decided it was time to change.

I made 3 folders

  • Check daily – contains max 10 blogs i will check and read new articles from
  • Tech Stuff – Has blogs, tech news and lots of similar stuff
  • Photography stuff

The point is, the only way i could catch up on my reading was if i was not trying to catch up with a lot of things. In short, i was coping with information overload by just ignoring all that information.

So my solution was to arrange stuff so that i could catch up with the ones that mattered. The rest, well i might flip through them on evenings or weekends IF i get around doing that and i would still be better than before, and not ignore it totally.

Where else do we face overload and how do you cope ?

  • email accounts
  • Electronic stuff that you work with/want to buy
  • Health notes from forwards and emails
  • List of things to do / read etc
  • Things to keep track off, and manage at work
  • Education (exams skipped during school coz you would not score anyway?)
  • Weight loss – (So much to do, might as well not try)
  • Social Networking updates ?
  • Cooking ?
  • Stocks and Financial info ?

I wonder if there is any other way to cope with overload, other than just filtering  … outsourcing  ??


If you knew kids, you would be able to predict how they react when they see another kid being givencandy. They would want it too.

All these financial bail-outs are creating the same situation. I used to wonder what would keep all the companies from asking for help. If I ran a company and saw my competitor being handed out HUGE amounts of cash, i would want a piece of that action too.

Now, auto companies want a bail out. Next i imagine hedge funds and airplanes and everyone else would want a bailout.

There has been solid proofs already reported on the net (immobilienblasen) about how this has already happening. (Picture from same blog)

This really only hurts the overall financial sentiment even more. There should be some detriment in place, or government should enter into some profit sharing agreement, (that cant be fooled) that keeps all these big guys from begging at the governments door.

Wonder what all those wise guys are thinking !!!

My sweet little sis (yes the same, who wrote a better grep than microsoft), just landed up in the Indian oceans backyard, Australia. Here’s her first impressions about Sydney –

“The climate is a bit tough, though not so hard. Freezing (12 C) all the time. But after all, everything’s just a matter of getting used to, isnt it. So no worries. It’s a very lovely place. When i look out of the window, i can c many trees, which itself is a pleasant site. Birds chirping in the morning, chilling cold and with a nice person to live with 🙂 … im enjoying. When we were out to c the place where Captain Cook landed first in Australia, i saw many families come there for playing rugby in the big nice, neat green ground and families with their children eating nd having fun. The place looks very lively and healthy. Everywhere it’s greenary and trees have started shedding their leaves . So i think it must be autumn next month. “

Beautiful !!
