Email won’t go away any time soon | L’email ne s’en ira pas de sitôt | plerudulier
How many times have I read how dreadful email is killing business, how much time was wasted just to be able to empty one’s inbox; I may even have contributed every now and then.
Email is to remain for quite some time simply because of the way we work. If you have ever viewed presentations or tutorials of Slack which is meant to literally kill emails you may have realized that the demo scenario is systematically a unique project everybody seems to be working on at the same time. In the real life it doesn’t work that way : everybody is assigned to work on sets of projects which one rarely shares with anybody else.
