Yesterday at BigHugeCorp sucked

I sent and received about 200 Emails yesterday.

In a 10 hour day, that's an average of 3 minutes to per message. Are we really receiving, comprehending, evaluating, and delivering considered responses in 3-6 minutes?

Of course, 3 minutes assumes that all I'm doing is Email. Which I wasn't.

Looking at my IM log, I had like 27 separate IM conversations, and there were 4 scheduled conference calls, multiple other ad hoc calls, hallway meetings, and personal interactions.

Sure, many of these happend concurrently; but that doesn't make this whole problem better.

We are so broken ... Gotta think about how to fix it ...
