Email – what’s right with it? #

No tool is all good or all bad, so following on from “Email – what’s wrong with it?“, here are some of the reasons why it is useful:

  • Email is almost ubiquitous
  • … has been around a long time, so almost everyone (in a work world) knows how to use it (or thinks

    they do)

  • … allows asynchronous communication, especially with offline workers (actually so do other technologies)

  • … is well-suited to notification-type communications

I’ve run out of ideas – please feel free to add comments…
