Professor Jones seems to have struck a chord with his attempt to abandon email. Since we published our look at his #noemail attempt and sat down for a chat, he’s been interviewed, referenced, and talked about all over the Internet--and even on the (local) nightly news. Other people have followed suit (knowingly or not), and some of the people who influenced Jones are continuing to promote a move towards a different kind of social communication (like, say, IBM or all this talk about Google+).
Even we were pretty surprised--the response to the piece we ran was pretty impressive all by itself. And the numbers from the poll seem to suggest that lots of you out there would like to ditch your inbox, even if you don’t think you could actually do it.
