Information Bonanza

For the past two years or so I've been d/l podcasts and vodcasts. I have so many that I can no longer keep up to listening to all the material! They have podcasts on just about every topic I need: Business, Indie music, Leadership, Tech, Gaming, Sermons, Foreign languages, This American Life, etc. I'm like a kid in a candy store!

I can say that the sermons, more specifically from TheResurgence, Acts29Network, have really gotten me in trouble with the established religious authorities, more specifically with the concept of missiology and reformed, biblically centered theology. This is how I got introduced to Tim Keller and Ed Stetzer, and other visionaries like Erwin McManus.

Then on top of this, most recently I've gotten into Google Reader's RSS aggregate reader. This will be information overload, but I love it! Now I don't have to go through like 50 different sites to get the news I look for. I put it all on one site. So now I don't have to keep clicking through Xanga.com subscriptions or slickdeals.net, or news.bbc.co.uk, or Tomshardware.com etc to got all the tidbits of knowledge I'm looking for. I can just go to one area and sort through more information in a timely fashion.

We're in the information age where it's more important than ever to be able to sort through the most important imformation and weild it for greatest effect. Knowledge is power. The power to wield influence and transform the world. I have no excuse anymore to claim ignorance.

. . . and I'm not even going to go into the world of BitTorrent in this entry. . . ;)
