Digital disruption: the internet is changing how we search for information

Nick Scott has written quite a lot about digital disruption and what it means for think tanks. I was sent this very interesting info-graphic produced by Online Graduate Programs by Tony Shin (@ohtinytony) last week that I thin is worth sharing with you. Notice how quickly we lose patience and stop searching for information or switch to other sources if the sites we are using are too slow (‘too’ meaning fractions of a second).

This is very important. It means that think tanks need to ensure that their sites are quick, easy to use and find information, and, as Nick would argue, be where people already to to search.

It is also worrying though because it means that we may be losing our capacity to research difficult issues to research.
