Email Is Bad For Us

from the anti-email-day? dept

Maybe W is onto something (see previous article about Pres. Bush giving up email). Following on an earlier article posted today saying that email is a revolutionary communications medium now we have the other side of the story. It’s email backlash time. Some professor has taken a few anecdotal stories and spun that into proving that email makes us lonely and isolated. Why do people like to blame technology so much? It’s just a tool. It can be used well, and it can be used poorly.
