June 27 ‘virtual literary salon’ will discuss five information overload books

Five influential authors—all of whom have written books on various aspects of information overload—will come together June 27 in a “virtual literary salon.”

The free teleconference is produced by the Information Overload Research Group and runs from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT.

The five authors and their books:

Dave Crenshaw, The Myth of Multitasking: How ‘Doing It All’ Gets Nothing Done (DaveCrenshaw.com)

Daniel Forrester, Consider: Harnessing the Power of Reflective Thinking in Your Organization (DanielForrester.com / @dpforrester)

Maggie Jackson, Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age (Maggie-Jackson.com)

William Powers, Hamlet’s BlackBerry: Building a Good Life in the Digital Age (WilliamPowers.com / @HamletsBB)

Jonathan Spira, Overload! How Too Much Information Is Hazardous To Your Organization (Basex.com)

Each author will discuss two topics—why they wrote their book, and the issues and solutions that are most significant. I’ve read Hamlet’s BlackBerry, Distracted and Overload!, and they’re all well worth your time. (The other two are on my must-read-soon list.)

You’ll find more detail than I’ve included here at iorgauthors.eventbrite.com, where you can register for the free teleconference.
