gmail overload

    kick-off image for a new Flickr group I created:

    Information anxiety is the topic of my graduate thesis and I'm trying to collect as many examples of it as I can as I begin my research.

    If you've got any examples, please post 'em!

    read more about my thoughts on the subject here.

    This particular example makes me feel anxious since I like to keep my gmail inbox at or near zero messages at all times. Seeing an empty inbox gives me a feeling that I'm on top of things and removes the possibility that there might be some overdue work items lingering behind one of the messages.

      Funny, I've been complaining that I don't get enough email anymore. It's all IM/LJ/SMS these days. Google the phrase "email is dead".

      Hello, I'm an admin for a group called Software Productivity, and we'd love to have this (or any other of your screenshots or screen-cam movies) added to the group!

      Cheers,

      Not as much emails as my mom gets in her MSN inbox but it's more than I get in my Gmail or Yahoo! inbox!!
