Following up on Dennis's comment that "information overload" is the wrong focus. I agree. I think people are too quick to say "there's too much information out there." What they're really saying is that "search" isn't the right methaphor for harnessing billions of pages. Search can surface the 10 best pages, but what about all the other pages? Text mining helps you leverage the rest by learning what's being said in the aggregate.

Glenn - Thanks for the commentary - and yes, without appropriate tools, information overload is a definite possibility, but with smarter, or more "intelligent" tools, summarizing, text mining, fact extraction, etc. - information becomes an enabler rather than a disabler.
