Declaring Aggregator Bankruptcy

Posted in Technical Update by Mike on June 6, 2007

I recently read an article by a business guy who, after a long vacation, found he had more email than he could reasonably catch up on. His final decision was to declare email bankruptcy. I find mself in those shoes with my aggregator. I am several hundred posts behind. Rather than kill myself to catch up on something that should be fun. So I am declaring aggregator bankruptcy.

If you wrote a post to me or about me or refering to me, I’m not ignoring you. I deeply apologize for the oversight.

With that, I wil be marking All as Read and will be back to my regularly appointed rounds shortly.

    I saw that in my email and downloaded the spreadsheet. Sorry I didn’t get abck to you on that sooner. I’m going to have Laura try to do the measurements this weekend.
    I’ll try to use my new skills to webize that for you too, later, much later.

    If you haven’t already, swing by the Inbox Zero series on 43 Folders.

    The one change that instantly saved me a stack of time on email was the switch to only checking it twice per day (previously I had it an email window open constantly). It feels much more like a task to be done than a constant chore.

    Actually, I have read that. I use it a fair bit. I still tend to have the window open a lot,t he killer for me was using the “touch it once method”.
    But this is aggregator bankruptcy, my email is pretty up to date. I just got about a thousand blog posts behind in my reading. As you know some folks will post a blog with a question on statement to you and if you don’t swing by, you miss it. That’s the reason I made the announcement.
    I tend to use the twice a day approach to the blogs but I ahd about a week there were I jsut didn’t get to ’em.
    I do have a serious problem with my work inbox. It has somehow climbed to 100+ emails. I’m gonna have to take a day away from my desk so no one can bug me and just work on email.
