Jakob Neilson's recent
AlertBox had a piece called Information Pollution. The summary:
Excessive word count and worthless details are making it harder for people to extract useful information. The more you say, the more people tune out your message. The title is taken from a chapter about antidotes to information in David Shenk's book Data Smog: Surviving the Information Glue - Give a Hoot, Don't Data Pollute. Be Your Own Filter.
