Email Overload — 6 Comments

  1. I think this is absolutely beautiful and I hope to see it up in town all matted and framed. Definitely one of your best.

    I am totally overwhelmed with email. I get so much junk mail that I have to keep checking 3-4 times a day just to keep up with it. I try to delete it as quickly as possible but if I travel it piles up and then it’s really a mess.

    I have to say the same about regular mail between junk mail coming to my door and coming to my computer it becomes a full time job. Although I am keeping on top of it I’d really like it all to go away.

    Sometimes particularly annoying or offensive junk email I will “bounce” which makes it look like it wasn’t delivered. I dump everything fast but what I’d really like is for somebody to make it illegal to troll for customers on the internet. I tried a junk mail filter but it kept putting my friend’s email into junk mail and the most scary part of it was after a few days it would be deleted. I think I lost track of at least one friend that way.

    This is a good topic. Maybe somebody else will have better advice.

    Love the zebra fish effect. Very cool.

  2. Thank you, Frances!!

    Hi Ellen – I have stopped using my spam filter for this very reason – potential customer and also friends were getting stuck – whereas the junk was coming through!!

    Thank you!

  3. I get very little junk mail, just the odd Viagra one, easily deleted.

    I love your zebra fish, quite a change from your usual stuff. It’s fun when i don’t know what’s coming up next.

  4. EVERYBODY has email overload… the world over. What I did about it is get with other people who want to do something about it in academia and industry and create the Information Overload Research Group, where we hope to raise awareness and drive the development of solutions to this problem.
