As I’ve previously mentioned, I finished reading The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption and, overall, I found it to be great read. Author Clay Johnson makes several excellent points throughout the book, essentially arguing that the problem is information over-consumption, not necessarily information overload. He uses health and nutrition as a metaphor, where …

What to Do Tomorrow, and in 2014

Earlier today, my brain was mush. I wanted to write but I didn’t have any ideas. I was stressed about work and money, which just filled me with worry instead of creativity. I wasn’t in the mindset to get things done or to focus on a task. But, I’ve worked my four-hour news shift and …

I haven’t played poker for a few months now. Probably the last time I played was when I was in Las Vegas in October. It might have been sometime before that or just after that trip when I last played poker online. The new update on Lock Poker took away all the fish, and I …

Half the Sky movement

I FINALLY have a private screening for Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide scheduled for this weekend. Granted, it’s only a partial screening of the economic empowerment section, but it’s a chance to educate people and to engage them in discussion and action on a very critical women’s rights issue. I …

Contributing to the Information Diet

i love the news

There’s a book I read about two years ago called, The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption. I remembered that I liked the book and found it informative, but after two years, I’ve forgotten the premise and main points. Since it’s a short book, and since I’ve gotten back into the news business, I’ve …
