Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Manage your email. Use a dumping one for spam/purchases and a real one for communication. Also try unsubscribing from mail lists and block problems.I flagged my teatard uncle as spam in my gmail account, and my inbox has been noticeably cleaner.
rooftop235: Um yeah, email is about as dead as me. It may be waning, but has a very long way to go before obsolescence.
Dinki: Can we file this in the same folder as "the PC is dead"?
farkeruk: What happens if Twitter dumps all your tweets from a year ago, or charges you for a premium service to see Tweets older than a week ago? All these services are like a Faustian deal. You sign up, get services for free, but they're going to make you pay for it, one way or another.
Kuta: Everyone bemoaning email in that article was selling a product that replaces it. Duh.I LOL'd at the guy who said he hasn't sent email in 5 years. If the entirety of his professional communication has been internal, I'm surprised he's still employed.

The Gordie Howe Hat Trick: The old ways are best. That's why I use smoke signals.

kab: Email dead? Keep telling yourself that subby."Here's the thing: You hand people cards and they send you e-mail," said Rudina Seseri, a partner at the Cambridge venture capital firm Fairhaven Capital, who no longer puts her e-mail address on business cards. "If someone actually cares what I think, they can make an effort and follow me on Twitter."Here's the thing. Anyone who wants to do business with you likely doesn't care what you think of anything else. So good luck with that whole 'make an effort' thing.
Generation_D: Email is dead.Um, yeah. I work in a company that sends from 10 to 200 emails internally a day, some of which a good 10 at least need to be responded to.Not everyone is going to sit on the tweeters for internally-sensitive details, and chat is just a really poor substitute for email due to its never ending stream of suck.Writers that declare "the end of" usually have a reason for marketing themselves as "being out in front of" something else. And are usually full of crap.
t3knomanser: God, I wish I could kill email. I really really wish it to be dead.My users want email notifications about everything. "User X did Y in application Q." And then, then they complain that they get too many emails. But the next time a feature is added or modified, they want email notifications about it.
red5ish: Twitter and Facebook, for example, each have messaging systems built in that replicate the direct - and private - contact e-mail provides, but have controls for users to limit who can contact them.1. This made me laugh.2. The author doesn't know how to use or manage email."I check Facebook first, then Twitter, then Instagram after that," said Kate Scott, a 21-year-old Boston University student.3. I laughed even harder.
ha-ha-guy: I should also mention I've gotten really good at going into meetings, detecting who is a worthless drone from sales and who is an engineer who I actually want to talk to. Then I do a fun little game where I palm my real business card and hand it to the engineer but pass out the general ones to everyone else.
