Can A News Organization Surivive A Day Without Email?

from the challenges... dept

Apparently, the Wall Street Journal's offices had a technical glitch sometime recently that left them without email for a day or so, resulting in reporters discovering what it's like to do work without email. Obviously, it wasn't that long ago that everyone worked that way, but it still shows just how much people have come to rely on email these days, and how people learn to cope without email. Of course, we're still waiting to see if the concept of email free workdays expands beyond the few companies that have tested it out.
