"Bit Literacy" by Mark Hurst --- March In-Synk Business Book Review
Friday, March 2, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM (CST)
Information keeps coming at us faster and faster, in more channels than we can manage. This isn't going to change.
Bit Literacy: Productivity in the Age of Information and E-mail Overload, by Mark Hurst, chronicles the way information flows to us today and provides concrete suggestions on how to make sure the right info is coming to you, how to make sure you don't miss anything, and how to send your own information to others so it won't get lost. It's a comprehensive outline of how to harness information flow instead of it harnessing you.
"We are still trying to process information like it's coming to us on paper when it's not- it's coming to us in 'bits.' We need a system for processing 'bits' instead of paper. This isn't about software or hardware. Those are just tools that might make things worse. This is about understanding 'bits' and using that knowledge to gain control of your information flow."
Doors open at 7:30. Review begins at 8:00. We'll be done by 9:00 AM sharp. Coffee provided.
"The Review and Synk Notes are better than the book!"
