I wonder if I could convince our bureaucracy to try this.
Last week saw the start of Zero Email Fridays at Intel along with a plan to uncubicle their offices.
As for ZEF, the plan doesn’t strictly ban e-mail. Intel is characterizing it more as an attack on the preference to use e-mail rather than walk across the aisle and talk to one’s coworker.
At least my cube is a little better than the example pictured in the article.
I’d certainly enjoy having permission to ignore my email for a day. :-)
