Next08 – Giving up on Work e-mail – Status Report on Week 14

  1. I wrote one of the 40 notes that hit Luis inbox this week. It was a personal note. Short. One line. But I wonder where I could have posted that note here on this page or what other collaboration mechanism I could have used to satisfy that ehereal need to connect just with Luis?

  2. Hi John! Thanks a lot for the feedback comments and for the information details! You see? I never said that I would be giving up on e-mail altogether. There is one disclaimer that I keep bringing up for folks on the only reason why I am still using e-mail: a one on one conversation of a private / sensitive nature where only me and the other party need to get involved, including discussion confidential information. For the rest it is out of my inbox, out in the open, public space for everyone else to engage further. If you noticed, I contacted you through Beehive to drop a quick message to acknowledge the e-mail, but leaving any hint out! And I will still do that! Hang in there and once I am done with all of this travelling I will chime in accordingly, if not sooner 🙂

    Thanks again for the feedback!

  3. Hi Luis, I can really imagine if people are run by the inbox rather than the other way around that you want to reduce emails. But when you have 40 mails, I still don’t see the point. It’s like saying you don’t want telephone anymore… So I’m curious about the other part of the coin, where did the communications shift to, and how does that improve your work/ make it more complex?

    By the way, our article is already in print, so no need to comment anymore!
