The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption – Johnson
Clay Johnson - 09.19.13
As fast and furiously as information flows today, how to cut through all the clutter to get to what really matters to a project, a team, a company? Clay Johnson draws from extensive experience in business, politics and the non-profit world to show executives how to filter the deluge of information to discern the truth, recognize what’s genuine and find the clarity of vision necessary to lead an organization.
Just as too much junk food can lead to obesity, too much junk information can cause cluelessness, posits Johnson, renowned for his 2012 book The Information Diet, as well as his work building President Barack Obama’s groundbreaking 2008 online campaign, and for leading efforts to build open-source tools for greater public access to government data.
The truth is out there. Johnson is showing organizations and their leaders how to find it through data literacy, attention fitness, and engagement in the economics of information.
A compelling speaker and a true visionary for the Information Age, Johnson’s prescribed diet is for anyone who strives to stay smart, productive and sane, in business and in life.
