Informational: Knowledge derived from study, experience, or instruction

How hard is it to be informative?  Especially when my short term memory is literally, just that. I was told yesterday in order to move forward, one must move as fast as before.  We are in the age of information overload moving full speed.  I find it harder to be negative after learning to Google not so long ago. It has helped me by finding inspiration online.  At times, I find it’s a lot of wasteful information and time lost searching multiple sites for one subject.

Does time past quickly for you too? How do you deal with it? How much do you use the information online? How many find it on the streets? I will be in Montauk finding inspiration with google and reading your responses. Enjoy the holiday!


  • There is a lot of information to be found on the www however sifting through ALL the information can be frustrating. I don’t watch television, which if find to be more time consuming, so I am much of the time on line working on projects, looking for information. For me it is a great and positive tool for inspiration for my interior projects and art. But mostly it feeds my great need for information of all kinds. It’s the www for a reason. Have an amazing weekend! ~Best, Carl

  • I have found Pinterest to be of ENDLESS inspiration. As it is purely visual, I can quickly scan thousands of images and collect them as if they were tear-sheets. More fascinating however, is the world it has opened to me of all the incredible talent out there – the site has members from all over the world and once you tap into an individual’s aesthetic, you find that following their threads leads you to images you would never have found. At first it’s definitely addictive, but I’ve since learned to restrain myself! Still, it’s far more productive for me than any other single site OR print publication.

    I agree with both Carl and Dawn, and frankly I was going to reply the same way; only I use both www and pinterest and if not careful can ‘waste’ many hours ‘researching’.

  • Time moves WAY too fast, but if you focus on what you need and what you are looking for on the web, this helps. Or, time yourself, say, an hour to research something, that works too. Hope you are enjoying the long weekend! ;-))

  • It is a lifeline for a little girl out in Wyoming, who needs inspiration and can’t travel often because of her small children. Pinterest is wonderful….it consolidates all that searching. Until the little ones are a little older, it will continue to be vital for my business. Great question!

    At my age, life began to move quickly some time ago and has picked up speed since. But computer and internet technology has accelerated the speed of work, which becomes the new norm. We must advance at the speed of our compatriots.

    Internet information, especially design information, is useful, delightful and addictive. It’s interesting how tech advances begin as luxuries and quickly become necessities. How did I get by without an iPhone? Images on a screen will never totally replace the experience of seeing buildings, walking down streets and through interior spaces, touching materials and sitting in chairs and sofas though, don’t you think? – Gary

  • I limit my time on the Internet (no more of 30 minutes daily) and search for inspiration in nature and travels. There is a wonderful book that help me to focus – “Enough. Breaking free from the world of excess” – John Naish
