E-mail hell

I have a love-hate relationship with e-mail, particularly at work. These two have described it much better than I.
  • You should delete so much of your e-mail. The default state of your inbox should probably not be keep sitting here until I stop weeping. Merlin Mann, Inbox Zero Talk at Google (video)
  • E-mail is the biggest time suck in the modern workplace. Julie Morgenstern in Never Check E-mail in the Morning

And I am proud to be a contributor to Sophzilla's e-mail time suck.

Heh heh heh

Well ya. Yours aren't time sucks. They are lovely intervals in a hectic day. Often an opportunity to blast out a "Ha!" or snort that compels co-worker's to ask, "What?"
