RIP email

RIP email

Jon Weedon writes in an article titled “RIP email. Is the writing on the Wall?” on his Ridding the Ripple blog:

Today, Iím afraid email has lost its sparkle. It has become nothing more than a tedious, ponderous and bloated utility. My use is pretty much confined to business, where it remains ubiquitous and, for the foreseeable future, will remain so until someone comes up with a better dashboard for managing ones private business communications, tasks and appointments

A lively discussion follows in the comments. Where among other things, the generational tendencies to use or not use email are underscored.

Fun read from a different angle than that of Luis Suarez and myself — although we both join in in the comments section.
