I hate getting email. But I recognize that the problem is not email as a technology; the problem is *people wanting to talk to you*. Email is the *least* annoying way for people to contact you, so it’s the most popular, which is why you have so many emails, which is why, paradoxically, it *feels* so annoying. But, what, you want everyone to start texting you? You want them to send you LinkedIn messages? You want them to *call you on the phone*?
