I know that entrepreneurs will try just about anything, but this latest plan to combat “E-Mail Attention Deficit Disorder” just has “Dilbert Cartoon” written all over it. Scott Adams is probably licking his chops right now.
Maybe it’s a good idea. I just don’t see how any manager or executive can pitch it to the rank and file with a straight face. Maybe it would help if they gave employees new job titles to match: serf, elf, dwarf, wizard, etc. That will at least create the right mood.
