#Infovore

I promised in the last post to write about a new word I just learnt.

Here it is: Infovore

It means:

1. a person who indulges in and desires information gathering and interpretation;

2. a person that has a voracious appetite for information.

Interesting, isn’t it?

A quick glance at it clearly reveals the etymology – Information and Carnivore (or Herbivore). Without thinking about it, I knew the word described me a great deal.

Are you wondering if the word really exists, are you one or does it in anyway describe you?

Check here, here and this book.

Before you ask how certain I am about my infovorous nature, I will share…

#Reading Challenge: Would you hold me accountable?

It’s been about a year since I posted on this blog, no? #JustKidding

Sincere apologies to those who have checked in every now and then; the reason is simple – I have been S-W-A-M-P-E-D.

Swimming frantically against the tide of work, a lifelong pursuit, training, project supervision/consultancy and a book project – little me. It has been tough, painful, hurting and simple stressful but I am grateful for inner strength and divine mercies.

I LOVE to read, just found a new word I will write about shortly.

Can you imagine my excitement when I stumbled on excerpts of what seems to be a very interesting book (THE RISE: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery) which interrogates aspects of our lifestyles, we hardly pay attention to? I bet you cannot. Just a review of the book got me soaked in and I already posted quotes on my Facebook Page and sent a shout out to the author on Twitter. She writes with the clarity of thought, yet uncertainness of someone open to superior arguments without a fight; she reminds me of one of my favourite authors, Malcom Gladwell.
