Thing 14

OK - I've hit the wall of information overload! 27,755 results for a search for "Learning 2.0"? Yikes. I suggest our next training be Speed Reading. And is "favorited" really a word?

However, this exercise did illustrate that different methods of searching obtain different results. I'm sure there is a lesson here that one can become more proficient at searching, and really zero in on the desired results to avoid being overwhelmed with information. But if the entry isn't tagged with the word you are looking for, in the words of Mick Jagger & Keith Richards (I just looked that up to verify the writers), "you can't always get what you want".
