I’ve been busy testing ClearContext v2 (more on that in a day or
two) and let a couple of stories pass by without comment.
First, Udo Shroeder has posted Email, Not Worth It? – another rebuttal to all these recent articles published predicting email’s death:
"[Email is] easy to archive, searchable, can be filtered, topics can easily be
scaled to additional people, it doesn’t take a lot of time to bring
some points across. Everything is documented, for eternity. And the
most important aspect: email doesn’t interrupt me."
Also, the Radicati Group has posted the results to an email usage survey
(have I mentioned before that I love a good email survey?) that finds
that nearly 25% of email at work is considered personal in
nature. Coupled with spam, the study indicates that more than 50% of "business" email is not related to business at all.
