Today I learned that an important work-related e-mail had not reached its recipient. Fortunately the person got in touch with me, but I suspect often they don’t and we all just assume that other people did not get around to replying and are a bit slack or rude or busy or hate us. Those of us who rely on the internet for business purposes lose money as a result.
According to a shocking statistic that I have just made up e-mail will be entirely useless in 5 to 7 years time as the systems will be so overrun with spam to as to be unworkable. It will all grind to a halt and there will be a small cloud of smoke, a medium-sized ‘pop!’ and that will be it.
In the meantime if you have not received a reply to an e-mail that you have sent me it is definitely because it has got lost in the internet. Unless you are one of the 113 people to whom I have not replied of course.
