Data Traps and Information Addiction

The easy availability of large amounts of data and information on any topic can lead to huge amounts of time and effort devoted to just the collection of such data. Both data and information collection appear to be useful activities and are indulged in as productive work. However, there is real danger of falling in data collection traps and addiction to collecting more and more information. The final use of data and information is for decision making and not simply for their own sake. This presentation will explain the nature of data traps and information addiction and how to avoid them.
