Infomania: Why we can’t afford to ignore it any longer

Infomania: Why we can’t afford to ignore it any longer: "The combination of e–mail overload and interruptions is widely recognized as a major disrupter of knowledge worker productivity and quality of life, yet few organizations take serious action against it. This paper makes the case that this action should be a high priority, by analyzing the severe impact of the problem in both qualitative and quantitative terms. We attempt to provide sufficient supporting data from the scientific literature and from corporate surveys to enable change agents to make the case and convince their organizations to authorize such action."

I am alway sortof confused when I see so many organizations drawing on cave walls when they could be flying spaceships when it comes to dealing this type of "infomania" or whatever you want to call it. I just found this site : http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2007/08/02/data-visualization-modern-approaches/
with a ridiculous number of fun visualization ideas, sites, etc....some familiar, some not... and its clear to at least me that it's worth trying to find a better way!
