Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Email is the New Offline

« Twitter - Macro Insights from Micro Interactions | Main | Catch the News on NPR »


Great site and I am really pleased to see you have what I am actually looking for here and this this post is exactly what I am interested in. I shall be pleased to become a regular visitor

I like what you have to say about e/mails they tend to get a bit flat after a while I've lately turned to Skype for those personal communications when communicating with other colleagues in our other offices and save the e/mails mainly for the customer base.

Very interesting --thanks. There are phone people and then email people. I am an email person for sure. I do find the communication that I do with the most depth is via email, either my work or personal account, or via Facebook directly to someone. Twitter, for me is to capture the most current news, trends and thinking, not so much for relationships-- it just moves way too fast for that. Since using all the platforms I am using, ( work email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIN, personal email)in addition to the other day to day face to face, I have noticed a need for more "quiet time" where I am truly offline, as it can really fry my brain mentally! I also, think way too fast to allow my own handwriting to catch up to my thoughts...!
