Slow news day

A New York Times story is making the rounds on an internal mailing list. This is news? Condé Nast editor can't handle lots of email, then whines about it?

"The following is just the last month's list of people and companies who have been added to my Outlook blocked list."

Wow. Is Condé Nast trying to cover 21st-century technology using a weak 20th-century mailer? I bet this guy would hire a Middle East correspondent who works out of the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, too.

Simple solution. Condé Nast management can put this chump in charge of a lifestyle magazine about using "vintage", obsolete, communications technology, and find someone who can handle a decent mail program to take over Wired.

For those who are interested in applying for the job, Sacha Chua has some good ideas on handling mail madness, but whatever works for you.
