Public Email

"How much of your email would you be willing to make public?" Window Snyder asked me.

Interesting question. Clearly not all of it ... but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that as usual her suggestion was not only provocative but profound.

Some of the advantages:

  1. A lot less time having to think about who's in the loop
  2. People don't have to worry about whether they can forward information
  3. Once people know that email to you will also be public, they're a lot less likely to send pointless or flaming email.

Given my current obsession with wikis, it was natural for me to suggest the idea of A wiki for public email.
