“Information Protection”

Michael Sampson - Currents

If you thought “collaboration” was a wiggly word with lots of definitions and places it could be used, you should try the phrase “information protection” on for size.

Information Protection: The What

Michael Sampson - Currents

When thinking about information protection , one of the key questions is what: what specific information should be protected? Other information does need to be protected – for a variety of reasons (the why, which we’ll talk about more fully later).

Sharing information

Viv Mcwaters

Increasingly, I’m being asked this question of face-to-face meetings: “How can we make sure people have received our information unless we do a presentation?” Those asking it do indeed have important information that they have for others.

Information Protection in Windows 10 and OneDrive

Every vendor struggles with the balance between releasing tools that enable productivity through information availability and protecting information from too much disclosure / availability. To information that is sensitive, confidential, or in need of special protections.

Information Theory and Uncertainty in Collaborative Teams

Michael Sampson - Currents

Information theory says that new information reduces uncertainty. That as more information is gathered, collected, captured, understood and refined, uncertainty is reduced to such an extent that certainty rules the day.

It's-not-information-overload-but-filter-failure

Joitske Hulsebosch

A wonderful way of looking at the often mentioned problem of 'information overload'. Clay Shirky is turning it around: the problem is not information overload, the problem is that people don't know how to filter. These networks may be formal as well as informal.

Improving Things for Knowledge and Information Workers

Knowledge and information workers don’t produce physical product. The “factors of production” for knowledge and information workers are intangible and largely invisible. But these are only supportive of the knowledge and information process, not primary to them.

77% of learning = Informal

Joitske Hulsebosch

Jay Cross states that 80% of learning is informal (in his book informal learning ). This was the list: - Experiences on the job 45% - Manuals and instructions 2% - Training programs 8% - Networking 30% - Mentoring & coaching 3% - Special assignments 2% - Workshops 10% You could say 77% is highly informal (experiences on the job, manuals, networking) and the rest is more formal.

Facilitating informal learning: mindset, lifestyle and paying attention

Mathemagenic

A lot of learning in our lives is informal, embedded, implicit. The funny thing is that facilitation of informal learning is often also informal, embedded and implicit – we often don’t know what is there, how do we do it and what comes out of it.

Blog>> The Information Lifecycle

Green Chameleon

The base for this approach is to look at the ‘Information Lifecycle’, how is information created from first drafts to published final documents. In order to illustrate the steps above let me describe what I mean with an example of project information. Typically a project starts with the work of individuals; they write down drafts of project descriptions, collect relevant information, etc.

Information abundance and learning

Erik Duval’s topic for Change MOOC this week was Learning in a Time of Abundance , which he equates to changes in connectedness (we can be more connected to people and information than ever before), openness and transparency (access and resources) and ‘always on’ (e.g. His classes can run for 5 hours, which gives students the time to find their own lines of enquiry and navigate a path through the abundance of information.

Information overload and connectivity

Jenny Connected

There has been a discussion on Quora to which George Siemens contributed and we have been reminded in some posts of Clay Shirky’s suggestion that information overload is a consequence of filter failure. But I’m wondering whether it is information overload that is the problem. Would an answer to this question sort out the information overload problem?

And importantly, the message is lost amongst all the information. Information overload. People don’t engage because you give them more information.

Information Overload Can be a Misleading Term

Portals and KM

Nicholas Herold makes a nice point in the post, Information Overload?  The Darwin Awareness engine does not help with those simply overwhelmed with too much information. Instead it organizes information into patterns that help the knowledgeable person make sense of what is happening in their area of interest. In this sense having massive amounts of information is a good thing if you can process it effectively.
