That's fascinating.  I read a lot of email myself.

"E-mail is broken," said Anna Rosenman, senior product marketing manager at Salesforce. "E-mail is one-to-one communication, and that's not how we need to be communicating."

I think we found the spammer.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: If email is dead, how come my oncalls are so freaking totes cray cray?


fixed that for you, douchebag.

I one up'd all of these hipster-email losers.  I've unsubscribed from actual, face to face, human interaction.  My mind is no longer cluttered with human spam bots, all trying to look/sound/act relevant and capable.  I filter everything through my 'memail' spam filter.  THEN, at the end of the day, i go back through, and decide if any of these farkwads are worth adding to my contact list.

John Buck 41: 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.

Who cares what this pompous twat thinks?


E-mail is antiquated and useless, but paper business cards are the wave of the future.

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.

I just wanted to highlight the unmitigated stupidity of these two quotes: "'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.'"

These tell me two things.  First, she is a self important jackass.  "Make an effort" to follow her on twitter tells me that she uses that phrase for all kinds of meaningless, petty, and self centered demands on people who work for her.  Second "had people cards and they e-mail you" is sort of the point.  This is how communication works, it is a two way street. Telling people to follow her twitter just tells me that she wants to lecture but not actually have to bother listening to anyone.
