Inside PR 2.88: Email. The Bane of our Workday.


Are you struggling to keep up with all the email you receive? Is email totally broken as a productivity tool?

Two recent posts by Fred Wilson and MG Siegler about their frustration with email glut serve as a jumping off point for Martin Waxman, Gini Dietrich and Joseph Thornley to discuss the challenge of making email serve our needs.

Also noted this week: Shel Israel, co-author of Naked Conversations, has a new book, Stellar Presentations: An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Giving Great Talks, published via Amazon’s publishing program. It’s a useful book with lots of practical tips for anyone who has to pitch a business or convey a new idea to an audience.

And this was also the podcast we recorded on Gini Dietrich’s birthday. If you want to join in her birthday greetings, check out this happy birthday post from Jack Bauer, Gini’s dog. Happy birthday Gini!
