Cleaning Up Information Pollution

Jakob Nielsen’s Alertbox lists Ten Steps for Cleaning Up Information Pollution .

All are fairly common sense. None of them are that hard to do. None of them would cost much, if anything, it practiced (and likely save money). Most of them should be standard policy for any non-Neolithic organization. Sadly few company teach good infomation habits.
