Abe Lincoln on email
The Lifehacker postthat pointed this out is in My Link Blog on the right. I was going to just leave it there as a shared post, but I couldn’t resist sharing this. It ultimately reinforces everything we’ve been told email should be. Not a replacement for face to face conversations, or a phone call, but a medium for quick communication or follow up. Major point made by the article: Less is more. Be succinct. Lifehacker links to a whole website dedicated to how Lincoln communicated, which is a fascinating read. Go ahead, take a peek.
