  • It would be presumptuous to call for the end of email, but it would be wise to use email more wisely. Email is an excellent information delivery system. The question for email senders is 'are you using email because it is the most effective for you or the receiver of your message?' Too often the answer is that we send email because it's easier for us rather than those who receive our message.
  • How is one to avoid loathsome spam, email blasts and Mass cc announcements? There are plenty of alternatives for those using the social web and it's up to those initiating a conversation to keep an eye on channels for communication and to engage a conversation about how to improve the conversation.
  • What if we were to think not of ourselves but those who receive our messages? It's time to ask friends and colleagues what they would like. Email is one of many tools in the communication toolbox. It can and should be leveraged with tweets, blog posts, YouTube videos, wikis and the vast array of options we have via the social web and face-to-face communication. Start with empathy and this email tip: send messages others would like to receive.
