This is a very interesting article about how email came about and why it is not a great messaging system for the Enterprise.


A Modest Proposal: Eliminate Email[^]

HBR writes:
A consequence of this workflow is that an organization’s tasks become entangled in a complicated network of dependencies with inbox-enslaved individuals sited at each node. The only way to keep productive energy flowing through this network is for everyone to continually check, send, and reply to the multitude of messages flowing past—all in an attempt to drive tasks, in an ad hoc manner, toward completion.

If you step away from your human network router duties, the whole apparatus can grind into deadlock.
