I’ve been using the empty Inbox system for a few days now. LOVE. The “archive” button in Gmail is now my favourite button. It means: “I don’t have to worry about this email anymore.”

I’ve made it so my blogposts (which tend to be short anyways) go to twitter too now. I just prefer posting on my blog. It’s mine, twitter isn’t, it’s theirs.

I removed over 11,000 messages from my inbox today and now I’m using the empty inbox system. So far: I’m LOVING it. Somehow it just feels like I’m in control now or something.

Fascinating for IA’s: “Now Iyengar has published a new study
showing that one way to combat the effects of excessive choice is to
group items into categories. It turns out that even useless categories
make people happier with their choices.”
