Please, I don't have enough time or energy to get to doctors' appointments. I'd be on the laptop during reconstructive surgery to try to figure this all out. Maybe some of the young geeks can manage it for me because I'm frankly overwhelmed with information.
And Ian Kennedy from everwas.com seems hopeful - somewhat. But he sums up my problem as if he was reading my mind:
" It’s like . . In a matter of weeks we’ve gone from “Wow! I can find everything here!” to, “Crap! Over 600,000 results for the phrase Serendipitous Discovery? How can I find the one reference I’m looking for?”
"The huge opportunity ahead is a filter to bubble up the things you need to know without missing anything you want to know."
Oh please God, let this be possible!

What Ian says about what's happening at MyBlogLog has merit, though good lord I HATE that it was bought by Yahoo and I now have to jump through Yahoo hoops when signing in.
But maybe they're on the right track - or the totally wrong track - someone help me out here:
"We’re trying a few things out at MyBlogLog that vector results based on how you have tagged yourself on your profile. Right now, in a user’s New in My World feed, it’s a straight, chronological feed based on items that match your tags."
What do you think? Is there HOPE for information overwhelm? I've about reached my limit.
