Now attending NECC in San Antonio, Ewan McIntosh refers to a presentation by Chris Craft last week on cognitive load theory which is picking up new (or at least more) meaning for him at NECC. "There's. Too. Much. Noise. I mean noise in the physical sense and in this metaphorical one." He goes on to say that all of this overload is having a very negative impact on him and on those he encounters. "This is what has been happening to me for the past two days. I've become someone I hate: snarky, off-task, unproductive, unthinking." I'm quite sure that plenty of people are feeling the same way. The real question is, what do we do about it? -BD
