These days, my favourite tool is logseq . You can use logseq to capture, connect and create technical information.

Three strategies to manage Technology Overload

If you're reading this you're probably a knowledge worker . Your value lies in the knowledge at your disposal and your ability to apply it. There are daily advances in every field of technology, and you are subjected to a flood of new knowledge competing for your attention. It's easy to feel overwhelmed. In this article, you'll read a brief introduction to the flood of information overload and its causes. see three strategies you can use to cope with that flood. see how to avoid getting overwhelmed by the range of tools - otherwise the cure will be worse than the disease! But first - what's the problem? What's the problem? The Explosion of Information Edholm's Law states that Internet traffic now follows the same pace of growth as Moore's Law. That poses a huge problem for knowledge workers. Here's a picture of the problem: The knowledge gap If that worries you, you're not alone. Professor Eddie Obeng explores the Kno
