Of course, information overload is inevitable these days. You can easily get sidetracked by some bit of data and click through to something else… and before you know it, you've spent an hour reading about something that might not be pertinent to your original search. Sometimes this is a lot of fun, admittedly, but sometimes you want your content to be curated a little more– especially if you're actually trying to learn something specific.
I love finding knowledgeable mentors on sites like Pinterest and Learnist and following specific boards about archaeology or medieval jewelry. They're like digital sherpas, showing you cool stuff without all the extraneous stuff. I love it when people think I'm worth following, too. It makes me feel like I'm passing the torch, somehow.
P.S. The Learnist link above might be broken. I am hoping they get their site back up and running- it's like Pinterest's brainy older sister, with targeted tutorials and academic chops. I got early access via Klout and have only one board thus far, to help me practice bellydancing.
