Hello everyone! Welcome to Episode VI of the bi-weekly 'Life Without eMail' vodcasting series with co-hosts Claire Burge and Luis Suarez. 

In today's vodcasting episode we are asking ourselves a very simple question: ’Why #noemail  ?’ In previous episodes we have been getting a number of different questions and comments asking us about why #noemail   ? and all of a sudden both Claire and myself realised that we never gave a proper introduction of what #noemail  is all about in this series: the origins, the reasons why, the getting things started, the initial struggles and lessons learned, the pick of #noemail   as the universal hashtag for the movement, the overall purpose of redefining email’s role in today’s more complex than ever before workplace, the liberating movement behind it all, etc. etc. Essentially, the mantra behind re-thinking how we work today to become more open, collaborative and social through various different digital tools while getting work done.

Both Claire and Luis will embark on a trip down the memory lane remembering their initial steps in their own #noemail  journeys to set the context as to why the #noemail   movement was born, who is involved in it, where do they usually hang out nowadays with the rest of the ever growing community of #noemail   advocates and how you, too, could come along and join them, if you are embarking yourself on that journey to challenge the status quo of email’s role in today’s business world to become better and more effective as what we do, working smarter, not necessarily harder :)

We look forward to seeing you all joining us live on this week's vodcast at 16:00 UK time (noon EDT) on Wednesday 22nd April.

There will be a live Q&A session as well during the live vodcast, so you can share across any potential questions you may have with us. Come and join us! It will be fun!

The hashtag for this vodcasting series as well as the 'Life Without eMail' movement will be #noemail    

Let’s go! Let’s do it! :-D
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Luis Suarez. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Email in Real Life

Easter holiday break is now over and time to get back to work :) And when thinking about going back to work, I am pretty certain the very first thing you will be thinking about would be the 1,000s of emails that are just awaiting in your inbox for some kind of response, if they get any at all. But what would happen if we would have email in real life? 

Well, that's just exactly what the incredibly smart and fun folks +Tripp and Tyler have pretty much done with their new sequel (Remember 'A Conference Call in Real Life'? > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYu_bGbZiiQ ) on eMail in Real Life

This short video clip is a #mustwatch  for the #noemail  fans out there, specially, if you would want to experience for real how silly some of our email conversations have gotten over the years. Just watched it myself a couple of times and I couldn't find a single instance where I didn't experience it, back in the day, in the hundreds, if not thousands, of times.

And you? What would email look like to you in real life? Have a quick look and see it for yourself ... hehe

Your Celebrity Match 

Hummm, I don't recall following any major celebrity out there in Twitter that I can think of, unless Twitter has made me follow some just recently, nor in any other major social networking tool for that matter, but this is quite an interesting exercise, courtesy of +IBM Watson. Based on your tweets it does some kind of analytical work to let you know your Celebrity Match

And in my case, I don't mind at all the results, since I have always thought he,@slash, is one of the most gifted guitar players known to us all in recent history. Sweet Child O' Minehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w7OgIMMRc4 is a small proof of it, don't you think? 

So, which one is your celebrity match, according to Dr. IBM Watson? :-D

Yeah, that moment when ... 

... you head into Google Plus Homepage to catch up with the social streams, read some of the interesting insights and posts coming along, you then accidentally? hit refresh, page re-loads up and an entire new Home for G+ comes along and you have to start again that catch-up with a completely different set of entries. 

Yeah, I know, I, too, hate it when it happens and just wish G+ would stop doing that with that silly algorithm of hiding, on purpose, content from you, so you would hit refresh time after time after time and be glued to it for the entire day! 

Nope, thanks! That's not going to happen. That's why G+ Circles were invented for :-P but can you imagine seeing that happening on an ESN? :-O  #justsayin

+Carsten Rose Yes, I can imagine how most ESNs would be very attracted to such approaches as they are already very popular on the Social Web, alas, the latter miss big time the work context. I just can't imagine having it in an ESN and then the political battles of missing content because it just wasn't showing up on the streams! Nope, not going to happen, I am afraid! Oh, and remember, it's not really about information overload, but filter failure, as Clay Shirky would say :)

Conference Month(s) Are Well Under Way 

Having just returned from another business trip to Bremen (Germany), last week, to participate in the wonderful #ICSUG  event where I co-hosted a workshop with my good friend +Alexander Kluge around Social Business Adoption & Digital Transformation, it's now time to prepare for the next trip: Amsterdam

Yes, that's right! Mark your calendars, folks, Social Now is coming to town sooner than you thought! April 20th and 21st I will be participating on one of the most innovative and thought-provoking conference events out there where, for once, it's practitioners themselves (Us) the ones stirring the wheel and putting the vendors on the spot to really prove how their solutions may well fit businesses' needs vs. the other way around. One event not to be missed! 

And if you are going to be around those dates in Amsterdam and would want to meet up for a drink or a chat, or both!, let me know over here or through Twitter at @elsua 

Look forward to seeing everyone there! 

PS. Oh, yeah, by the way, during #socialnow  I will be sharing on my speaking slot the methodology I've developed over the course of the last 7 years to break free from the email yoke and live #noemail  day in day out, in case you would want to find out and everything ;-) hehe

Democracy at Work 

A couple of days ago, my good friend, +Harold Jarche, shared another massively enlightening and educational blog post where he comes to confirm the overall impact social networking tools (and social networks for that matter!) are having at work by helping the business world embrace democracy by becoming more open, social, collaborative, and overall more democratic and egalitarian altogether. 

It's a tremendous read and a highly recommended one as well, more than anything else because it will help clarify the existence and proper need for that (digital) transformation to take place through a #humanise  effort of the workplace itself. 

Here are a couple of my favourite quotes from the article, that I thought I would share across as teasers of what you can expect reading through it: 

'_Why do we need democracy? It is the only way humans will be able to organize in order to deal with the complex problems facing us. [...] New approaches to solving wicked problems are required if humanity is to thrive or even survive into the next century_'

Or this other one: 

'_Thinking for ourselves is the foundation of a new way of working. This requires an understanding of the whole environment in which we work. Artificial structures like jobs remove our ability to see the whole system. As we learn to think for ourselves, we must also connect with others. We are only as smart as our knowledge networks. But we do not need someone to manage our connections. The simple guideline of self-direction, often enabled by network technologies, can create beautifully complex relationships amongst interconnected people_'

eMail is not too big to fail 

Back in 1994, Michael Shoffner wrote: '_The Internet isn't just for email anymore_'

In 1999, +Bill French wrote: 'eMail is where knowledge goes to die' (See > http://kcy.me/11usb)

In 2004 +JP Rangaswami & +Stowe Boyd were already declaring email will be dying off a slow, painful?, death over time (see linked article). 

In 2008 '_Life Without eMail - #noemail _' was born > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnv6K5JmpTM 

In 2015, Stowe Boyd puts together a superb article with a killer conclusion that I think is worth while sharing over here to see how much progress we have made in the last 21 years and counting ... To quote: 

'_[...] Some media forms ultimately die, and I think email will too._'

'In a mobile world, I expect the phone number will replace the email address. And the contacts managed on our mobile device will be a better indicator of our social connections than the cc lists in our enterprise email. And we will tolerate the apparent chaos of using dozens of specialized apps for different kinds of communication, knowing that this leads to stronger connection, better understanding and deeper productivity.'

Go ahead and read the rest of the article for some pretty sound insights and advice on what awaits email in the business world in the very short term and then get ready to learn and adapt to a new reality of openness, publicy, transparency and social collaboration and knowledge sharing, because it's coming! :-D

“Email has evolved into a weird medium of communication where the best thing you can do is destroy it quickly, as if every email were a rabid bat attacking your face.” — Paul Ford, writer Bill French used the line — Email is where knowledge goes to die — for a talk in Australia in 1999, …

[Back from a biz trip to Germany and catching up with the social streams, once again :) ] +Bill French Thanks a lot for the feedback and I think we are in full agreement to a certain extent. I don't think anyone would deny the value of using your mobile phone / number as an identity / security item. I think the concern around privacy comes more from the point of view of who has got access to it for what purposes and how would I know whenever that happens. With an email address that's pretty innocuous, but when talking about your mobile # I think the game changes a little bit.

Two-factor processes are nice and lovely when they work in the same country. As soon as you travel to another country, you are in trouble, as I recently experienced myself on another recent trip I did :-// 

RE: 'Security seems to trump privacy' < Gosh, you can say that twice! Security seems to be trumping lots of things nowadays, including productivity, and while I agree with you on the shift, it's not yet still clear the wider implications of what happens with your mobile # once it leaves your mobile device and into the Social Web ... Lots to clear out on that one... For instance, last week, while I was in Bremen, wanting to make use of the free wifi at the airport, I was asked to hand out my mobile # as an authentication method ... No, thanks! Needed to know where that was going and since there wasn't clear info on it, I decided to remain in the dark and keep using my mobile phone as a brick of sorts :-P

Hello everyone! Welcome to Episode V of the bi-weekly 'Life Without eMail' vodcasting series with co-hosts Claire Burge and Luis Suarez. 

In today's vodcasting episode we will continue to talk some more about eMail Is Broken - What Can Be Done?, where we are very excited to have with us special guest speaker +Andy Swann. He will be sharing with us the story of his own personal journey on having done #noemail   for a few months already, how and why he got started with it in the first place, what triggered it, what reactions it created amongst his colleagues, what he has learned about making such bold move and, finally, some of the perks about #noemail   you may not have realised about just yet. 

Here is a short biography from Andy Swann: 

'Andy Swann cares about the future of work and the future of the organisations we work in. He believes things can be better, simpler and is making it his mission to be a leading voice in the call to action.'

'Part digital artisan, social artist and workplace innovator, he has arrived here via a work life that has taken in everything from manufacturing Scotch Eggs to Senior Management – and a whole lot in between. He is welcoming a future of simpler, more human workplaces, where collective conscience drives positive impact on the world.'

'On his own perpetual search for meaning, Andy is creating a range of social projects as he goes.'

'You can connect with him and his work at http://www.iamtheworkproject.com'

----------
We look forward to seeing you all joining us live on this week's vodcast at 16:00 UK time (noon EDT) on Thursday 9th with guest speaker Andy Swann. 

There will be a live Q&A session as well during the live vodcast, so you can share across any potential questions you may have for Andy himself. Come and join us! It will be fun!

The hashtag for this vodcasting series as well as the 'Life Without eMail' movement will be #noemail   

Let’s go! Let’s do it! :-D
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Luis Suarez. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

The serious question: Could you live without your smartphone?

Apparently, 46% of smartphone owners can't. At least, in the US. But how about you? Would you be able to live without your smartphone? 

If someone would have asked me that same question say, 10 or 15 years ago, I'd have probably told them that I would and without a problem. Fast forward to 2015, and the answer, for me, would still the same. Of course, we can live without our smartphones?!?!

It's a different matter if you could live without breathing! :-O 

I am not too sure how we ended up building that obsessive and compulsory need to be addicted to our smartphones, but something tells me that if things continue like this, very soon, if not already, we would have much more important issues / problems to tackle than whether we can live without our smartphones or not. 

Come on, people, a smartphone is just another tool, pretty much like any other 'tool' / technology out there that allow us to get something done in a more or less effective manner. It's an enabler, nothing more, nothing less.

Yes, I am, too, in love with my iPhone 6+, but from that to say that I couldn't live without it, it would be a bit of a stretch, because, you know, I surely can. That's just something called Life (with a capital L) that no smartphone or technology would be able to ever replace it. 

It's the enablement, the augmentation and the exaptation that matter the most, not whether we can live with or without those devices #justsaying  

#pewresearch   #mobile   #mobility   #purpose   #technology   #trends   #trends2015   #habits   #experiences   #life   #balance   #adoption   #adaptation   #enablement   #smartphone   #tools   #productivity   #think  
Nearly two-thirds of Americans now own a smartphone. 19% of Americans rely to some extent on a smartphone for internet access, but the connections to digital resources that they offer are tenuous for many of these users.

WOW! +David Proffitt I guess I won't be doing that, then, just in case the shock would be far too mind-blowing to bear (Which I suspect it will be, based on your comment above...). 

PS. Coincidentally, I just bumped into this article > http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-on-the-apple-watch-your-phone-is-ruining-your-life-2015-4 that seems to want to put things a little bit more into perspective with our smartphone use.

[Yes, I, too, see the irony of being dragged away from it to then be back into it #lesigh  ]

Google Plus Photos or Why Too Much Fragmentation Can Be a Bad Thing

Ok, I guess something has been bugging me for a little while now around Google Plus and I think I may know now what's going on: Why should I upload my photos over here when I have already been using both Flickr + Instagram for a good while? 

What are the perks, if any, of doing so? Why should I make the effort to fragment my online photo sharing bandwidth even more with G+ Photos? Yes, I know I could share duplicates of photos from other existing places and everything, but I have never been a big fan of cross-posting anyway, specially, when social networks may be somewhat similar as it can be a tad annoying seeing the same content over and over again... 

So, dear fellow Google Plussers, tell me why you think I should bother with uploading photos over here in G+ or, in other words, what perks are you finding / experiencing yourself that can help convince me I should start upload some soon enough over here? Thoughts, feedback, tips, please... [Thanks!!]

+Luis Suarez Sorry about that, Luis. The HBR post was shared in 'extended circles' from one of my friends.

"That article from HBR is perhaps one of the top reads from HBR this year trying to help everyone understand how thanks to the democratisation power of social networks traditional command and control management may have its days numbered. Alas, the comment around power and status does not relate to management alone, but to everyone where we seem to always want to exercise the two of them to see where we would fit in, if at all, vs. the other way around on caring, empathy, kindness and #togetherness  as you will noted above.

Good old   #fellowship , really, if you come to think of it :)"

You really read my mind and synthetize the essence of this post and conversations around it!

Sharing what I discussed in this G+ thread that you can't see unfortunately :(

Extract from the HBR post:

"We all sense that power is shifting in the world. We see increasing political protest, a crisis in representation and governance, and upstart businesses upending traditional industries. But the nature of this shift tends to be either wildly romanticized or dangerously underestimated.

There are those who cherish giddy visions of a new techno-utopia in which increased connectivity yields instant democratization and prosperity. The corporate and bureaucratic giants will be felled and the crowds coronated, each of us wearing our own 3D-printed crown. There are also those who have seen this all before. Things aren’t really changing that much, they say. Twitter supposedly toppled a dictator in Egypt, but another simply popped up in his place. We gush over the latest sharing-economy start-up, but the most powerful companies and people seem only to get more powerful."

Some of my comments on this G+ thread & HRB post were:

Comment 1:

This visual sums up many ideas shared from this long HBR post.

This comes from this blog post by Michel Bauwens pmrks.com/keAgnw

Comment 2:

So how to go beyond the four boxes? Pondering these days...

Reading and highlighting from "11 Rules for Creating Value in the #SocialEra " by Nilofer Merchant.

"These models [*] are all valuable but only partly social. Let’s face it, every business model has already been done in some form already. Free was around before social."

"The Web just took an already existing business model (free) and made it easier to do on a broader scale. In the case of software, the Web allowed easier distribution of products (and a lower marginal cost) to enable freemium pricing as a core new business model. The same is true for rental models that were around in the traditional world, as you likely remember from high school prom tuxedos to bowling alley shoes. In the Web 2.0 era, we saw that in SaaS models that allow a lower cost of ownership of software for enterprises. It was just rental with a more efficient cost structure. My point is that every business model has already been done in some form already—sponsorship, advertising, free, rental—in the traditional era and the Web era."

"The question is really what could any business look like when all the business levers are socially oriented; what could happen next? We have yet to see the full range of business models we can create when all the levers are exercised. The Social Era, with its fundamentally different ways to create value through connected individuals, will surely bring more options. We need innovative business models to go hand-in-hand with innovative ideas. Importantly, these new constructs will give us more than money. If we can use assets more effectively, we will lower our impact on the earth. If we can find local resources, we can connect to our community in a different way. Maybe this means we will generate more prosperity, not just more wealth. Maybe it means people will see and sense their community. Not only will social models provide a way to build in resilience, they could enable a deeper connection to community in which we are creating. The next big ideas, the next big companies, or the next business models won’t be created by those who say that what we already have works well enough."

[*] The models are also shared in her blog post with this table/visual synthesis http://pmrks.com/eiVyig 

Thoughts?

Looking forward to hearing your insights when I will come back to this thread when I will go sync again... :) going #slow  now...

Hello everyone! Welcome to Episode IV of the bi-weekly 'Life Without eMail' vodcasting series with co-hosts Claire Burge and Luis Suarez. 

In previous vodcasting episodes we covered extensively how broken email is today. Well, not really email as a system, but our constant (ab)use through enough bad habits to want to make people despair from time to time. So what can be done? What can we, as individual knowledge (Web) workers, do in order to break the chain, to free ourselves from the email yoke or, at least, eventually tame the beast somewhat.

In today's live vodcast both Claire Burge and Luis Suarez will cover a number of different strategies, capabilities, hints & tips, tricks and what not, that practitioners can learn about to demonstrate how there are, indeed, better collaborative and knowledge sharing tools people can use much more effectively than having to constantly rely on email and fight off our many bad habits when using it. We will be discussing how knowledge workers themselves can start building different methodologies to mitigate their own dependency on email and instead transition into social networking tools, where needed and applicable, to become more open, collaborative and, eventually, more social

We look forward to seeing you all joining us live on this week's vodcast at 16:00 UK time (noon EDT) and get ready because your own personal transformation journey of living #noemail  is just about to start! Today!!

There will be a live Q&A session as well during the live vodcast, so you can share across any potential questions you may have for the co-hosts. Come and join us! It will be fun!

The hashtag for this vodcasting series as well as the 'Life Without eMail' movement will be #noemail

Riepl’s Law, or why email won’t die any day soon

Very interesting and thought provoking article by Alan Patrick (@freecloud) wanting to confirm Riepl's Law about the persistence from email in today's business world, regardless of what we keep hearing elsewhere. Why do we still keep insisting in killing email (or killing anything for that matter!)? We should do better than that.

It's not necessarily about wanting to see email die a slow and painful death, but more of a re-purposing of how we use email at work (never mind in our personal lives). Pretty much like the fax, or the telephone (voice), or morse code, or whatever other technology you'd want to think about. 

None of those have died a slow painful death, have they? Instead, they have become a whole lot more purposeful to execute on a couple of very specific use cases very effectively and then they have let their space to other more advanced and modern (digital) technologies to take over where they know they can't excel anymore, as they used to. 

eMail is going through that exact same phase at the moment and I, for once, would love to see some decent studies and research that would start showing us email's decline as a content repository vs. as a messaging and notification system, at which point it's no longer really email, but BACN. Over 40 years ago it was designed for that very same purpose as a starting point!

I guess most people don't want to see those studies as they would come to realise how email has already taken that place of being left aside for a couple of good use cases and let other communication / collaboration tools take over.

And that's a reality that most of us are perhaps not willing to admit and digest, because, somehow, we still keep justifying our very own work by the amount of emails we get on a daily basis or the ones we sent. It's become our task management tool and if all of a sudden that's taken away from us, plenty of people wouldn't know what to do next. 

That's why instead of resorting to Riepl's Law to justify the existence of email for a long good while still, I think we would be much better of understanding the secondary role email is playing nowadays and how it's been repurposed accordingly for more open, collaborative and social tools.

It's our mindset and behaviours that need changing, shifting accordingly, not claiming whether email is dead or alive.We don't need any laws for that, I am afraid. We just need to open up accordingly and move on with the times, just like previous generations over decades have done...  

#noemail   #outsidetheinbox   #lawwe   #technology   #productivity   #knowledgesharing   #evolution   #deathtoemail   #transformation   #socbiz   #openbiz   #collaboration   #mindset   #behaviours   #adoption   #adaptation   #thinkdifferent  
It has become a truism that Social Business tools will replace/remove/redundantify (if such a word exists*) email. It's never going to happen. Email will be here for a long time still, so get used ...

Chief Emergineer & People Enabler, Living A Life Without eMail (#lawwe - http://kcy.me/13j66)
Introduction
