Today while I was taking my daily dose of newspaper reading, I came across this interesting article from Huffington Post Canada (one of my favourite papers online). Of course, the topic they covered in their article relates to the topical theme of this blog. It particularly clicks in with what I have posted in "13 Web Tools to Harness the Web" just a couple of days ago : How to deal with this increasing avalanche of digital data coming from our technolog-focused environments.
