The problem with running lots of email discussion lists is that from time-to-time, all the clever filtering goes haywire and you end up with a page of HTML code, when you should have a nice readable paragraph of text.
A couple of years back I started using a tool called ClearContext, which prioritised the 3-400 daily emails I receive based on their priority. Some special algorithmic magic looked at how often I read, how quickly I responded to automatically work out what was a priority based on my behaviour.
Having taken the plunge in January and moving wholesale from Outlook to Gmail, I’ve become hooked. Once or twice, I’ve even got close to reaching Inbox Zero. Close, but no cigar, at least not for long. Still, it’s an improvement.
Is this reason enough to buy an iPad? Mmmm bacon.
This is pure class. Although could possibly be an impediment to a future role…or perhaps not. Very funny.
