Gates and Ozzie on Email Hell

This Fortune article has a great interview with Bill Gates and new Microsoft CTO Ray Ozzie on how they see email tools evolving.  It’s not hard to guess why we find Ray Ozzie’s comment so intriguing:

"Funneling messages in chronological order into
an in-box is not necessarily the best model for dealing with different
projects, different teams, different issues, while other unrelated
things get intermixed with those. You have no sense of the priorities."

You’re preaching to the choir here, Ray.  Read the rest of the article for Bill’s explanation on how he manages his email account.  Good stuff.
