Long time guest and friend of the show Gabe Goldberg comes by to talk about how much information is too much on our July 4th show.  Are we freeing ourselves with all this technology or servants to emailing, tweeting and being connected in general?

Gabe addresses abundant information and whether all information is necessary or if it is overkill, other sorts of information distractions, and how to control “too much” information.

Gabe is a technology communicator and consultant. He has written hundreds of computer press articles and speaks very frequently to all kinds of crowds about technology used in today’s society (*Take the survey to see if you are overloaded JUMP – Details Below).
