What we didn’t bring up is his work on a different kind of overload: Email Overload.
In his email discussion, he hits on a point familiar to Bscopes blog readers. He says:
It is solved by teaching people better email behaviors.
Clearly, Joshua has noticed that Information Overload is Illogical. And so many of the suggestions that he (and others) are advocating are all around the behavior of checking or sending email. And, as others have noted, this can certainly help with the stress associated with Email and constant interruptions.
He also points to tool based help to the problems people have with email. And buried deep inside that post is another kindred spirit to Bscopes. A mention of a tool called PhilterIt. Which lets you “Visualize Your Emails Anywhere”. This is something we are going to have to check out.
Clearly the more we look, the more we find. Leave a comment below and let us know what other visual tools are out there.
