Objection #11 is more of a idea we all need to realize rather than a difficult objection to overcome. I think people intuitively can get over this one, but emotion gets in the way. “There will just be too much information. It will overwhelm them and they will never find what they are looking for.”
Answer: It is true that information is increasing at an increasing rate. But does that mean that we let go trying to manage it and just let it happen? No, we have to help it. One of the organizational things I have watched is the switch from taxonomy to folksonomy. From a file/folder structure to a combined file/folder and tagging structure. In the corporate environment it is a difficult switch because it is a cultural switch.
Watch this video. It will explain how we have so much information that it cannot be effectively managed using the old way we manage.
We have to change how we manage information. For this to be effective, we have to do two things. The first is to, obviously, start organizing the massive amounts of our information in a way that will allow us to find it when we need it. The second is to help others use the new method to find the information. It is the switch in our minds that becomes the most difficult.
If we are going to allow everyone to learn from each other, this is a MUST.
