Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg sez “Email is dead”

Paul, · Categories: #noemail

In June 2010, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg spoke at the Nielsen Consumer 360 conference. Her message: “Email is dead!” Her answer unsurprisingly: Facebook is the future. Facebook rules. You will use Facebook.

I’ve seen too many platforms deform and decompose too quickly to say that Facebook has all the answers or could ever achieve implementation of the answers that they do have, but I do believe that Sandberg is on the right track (since it’s the same track that I’m on myself). Worth a view — and worth the panic and the anger in the comments ;->

Strong Bad’s Dream Email

I’d had a full day of meetings, Face to Face, with people yesterday and so did no email. One of my colleagues Skyped me to say let’s go to the Bull game and so I spent the evening without email as well.

Strong Bad uses technology (mostly email)

Then I went to sleep. In my dreams, my favorite email reading entertainer appeared — Strong Bad from Homestarrunner. I can’t remember the dream, but here (sorry I can’t embed) is Strong Bad receiving his dream email.
