Gates: 'Information overload' is overblown

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates on Thursday countered the popular notion that workers are universally overloaded with too much information.

Speaking to a crowd of chief executives, Gates cited the need for access to even more data in areas such as sales results and corporate budgets. "I'd say in all of these cases, we are really dealing with information underload," Gates said in his talk, which kicked off Microsoft's annual CEO Summit. "We still want a lot of information."
