The Tyranny of Email

Thursday 13 March 2003This is over 20 years old. Be careful.

Ole Eichhorn has written a thoughtful essay called The Tyranny of Email, which is partly about email, but mostly about the tyranny of distractions. I’m not sure I agree that you need a three-hour window to be productive, but I definitely agree that it takes real work to stay focused. I like his use of the word “warp-off” to describe escaping to a fun or easy task.
