Sign of the Times: Declaring Email Bankruptcy.

Yesterday I sat down for two hours and simply deleted emails. The whole time I was thinking, This is miserable... I should be outside swimming or hiking or hanging out with Joe Massey drinking beers in hippyville swapping NASCAR poems. Then, today, Tyler Doherty told me about how more and more people are simply declaring email bankruptcy — writing everyone on their email list with the note, "If you've sent me an email (and you aren't my wife, partner, or colleague), you might want to send it again." This is a grand idea! I bet it's going to take off like wildfire.

Ah, the beauty of an empty inbox...
