Bill Carlino recently mentioned an accountant who has shunned e-mail all of these years. When I read this piece, my mind got to thinking about how much this guy has missed out—or has he? That’s up to you to ponder. It might also depend upon how much you enjoy fishing, calligraphy and going to the post office.
As Bill pointed out, 295 billion e-mails are sent every day. I might add that at this point in time, in one day, enough information is consumed by Internet traffic to fill 168 million DVDs. That’s roughly the same amount of plastic that AOL used to mail out each week, I think. Also, my blog, Bill’s blog…and two million other blog posts are written each and every day. I don’t think the folks at AOL could have foreseen these types of Internet usage
numbers when they first starting mailing out those plastic CDs.
Imagine what your work life and personal life would be like right now if e-mail never existed. While it doesn’t mean that your time would have been spent churning butter, without a doubt, we all know our lives would be markedly different than they are right now.
