E-Mail Overload? Please. World Magazine's October 7, 2006, issue quotes "Dennis Fluegel, a retired senior project manager" as follows:
If Bill Gates invented the telephone and Alexander Graham Bell invented e-mail, we would all be saying, "You should get one of these telephones, you can actually talk to someone, hear what they are saying, and you don't have to use a keyboard."
My view, however, is that most of the time I am doing all I can to avoid talking to anyone. (It's a guy thing.) (Hence, the invention of email.)
