My mission is to seek multiple perspectives to help us answer some of the most pressing human questions in our consumer life today. Those perspectives also can serve as compelling, energetic keynote sessions for your organization, department or event.
“Information friction” and “information flooding” are two new terms I’m adding to my information literacy toolbox thanks to a keynote speech by Jason Voiovich at a recent conference for information professionals. Innocuously labelled “Information management lessons from China”, Voiovich provided many excellent and topical examples of how easy it can be to manipulate the information ecosystem and why we, as information professionals, must always be vigilant. He challenged us to think about ethics and the need to balance the public good and private information. He touched on topics (climate change, Amy Schumer) that are difficult to discuss in groups without offending someone, but he did so with an engaging delivery. I cannot wait for the book.
