Zero Email Policy

Author: Lyle

An ABC News article reports on a French company that is instituting a “no Email policy” – a transition to remove Email as a method for internal communication.  They report that only 10% of the messages have value, and 18% are pure spam, so they are moving to have all internal communication be instant messages and an internal Facebook-type application (perhaps “Chatter” from Salesforce?).

Feels like this article was sent to me from people hearing me mutter at my desk.

“E-mail is a party to which English teachers have not been invited. It has companies tearing their hair out.” – R. Craig Hogan

C-Net has an article on a wretched state of written communication in business E-mail. For those of you in school now, you will spend more time writing Email as you work in your Internet connected job in the future. Written Engligh and typing may be the most important skills you learn in high school. Spell checkers, grammar checkers, and “voice to text” will not save you.

It’s not that hard. We’re only expecting a 6th grade level, anyway.
