Addendum to E-vils of E-Mail post
Gates pointed to e-mail as an area where the information is coming in too quickly to be properly evaluated.
"There is a real temptation that the thing that comes in the latest is the one you shift your attention to, even though that may be the least important," Gates said. The result, he said, is that people either have to leave everything "in one big bucket" or they have to spend a lot of time creating lots of folders. "That turns you into a filing clerk."
Right on, Bill!
