If you are someone who does battle with multiple inboxes, feeds, flashing lights on your unread messages and buzzing phones in meetings because someone has checked in near you, here are a couple of high profile blog posts you may want to read.
I've taken the topic of email's general unsuitability to the modern business as something of a crusade over recent years (perhaps it's why I embrace everything else so much?). Here are a couple of my posts from 2008, 2009 and 2010. Every time I step away from my inbox for a meeting I return to hundreds of emails. I get thousands every day and use a heavy dose of rules and filters to try to deal with it all. Thankfully I'm not alone.
Foursquare's Tristan Walker's post 'I hate email' is all about taking email off your phone and the impact of that on your focus at work and home.
TechCrunch columnist MG Siegler's post 'Email. Archive it all. Immediately' is about emptying your inbox to see the wood from the trees. 'Best thing I've ever done' says Siegler.
Some great insights and I'll be trying both myself.
