Fighting data asphyxiation is difficult but possible / Legal Guidelines for Social Media and SMS use / South African ICT education to get a boost


Dear friends of the LG ICT Network,

Data is like food. A good meal is served in reasonably-sized portions from several food groups. It leaves you satisfied but not stuffed. Likewise with information, we're best served when we can partake of reasonable, useful portions, exercising discretion in what data we digest and how often we seek it out.
