AOL Email Addiction Survey

If you haven’t seen it yet, the results of the annual AOL email usage survey are all over the blogs today.  AOL found that 15% of surveyed Americans assert that they are “addicted to email” and 83% check email while on vacation.  It sounds like a widening gyre to me.  Folks are constantly in email to try and stem the flood, yet outgoing email begets new incoming email and the problem deepens.
