Gates Quote on Email Productivity

Here’s a quote from Bill Gates regarding email and office productivity:

"We, with our Office franchise, are committed to making workers far, far more productive than they are today. And believe me, we’re not running out of ideas. The phone is inefficient today with phone tag and busy signals. E-mail is inefficient today with seeing stuff that’s less relevant and how you organize it–bringing in the blog-type capabilities is very important there."

Taken from this CNET interview.  Obviously we think he’s right.  It’s interesting that he sees blog integration as a key part of office productivity enhancement.
