Quote of the week:
It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.

Comments:
I thought that this quote from ThoughtsOnThinking : Designing Out Loud blog was a nice compliment to your quote of the week:

"They say that in 1900, we encountered 1000 pieces of significant information per six months. In 1960, it was within one week. Today, it’s within one hour. How much knowledge can we actually retain when our “seven plus or minus two” short-term memories have to constantly filter, direct and trash most of that data?"

I wonder if our digital evolution will create an evolution of humans with larger sized brains? Maybe we will end up looking like the aliens from "Independence Day" after all.
 
I am getting very excited about NECC. The online conference planning tool will be a big help, and there is even a Group Planner:
"The group planner function allows you to share planner items with members of your group. You can be a group leader, creating a group and inviting others to become members. Or you might be invited to join a group created by another. All members of the group may then view the items that have been shared."
Go here to access the planning tools:
