'Out of Office' for September
My main blog's down (I really need to sort it out) so I'm posting this here for the moment.
When I was first introduced to Eugenie Teasley by email I got back a curious email auto-response referencing something she called #Flourish40. Eugenie wanted to make some positive changes in her life and was giving herself 40 days to do this. Something she wanted to cut down upon was the amount of time spent in her email inbox.
It struck me as a wonderful thing to do. So, during the month of September, I'm going to do something similar. I don't want to leave my email client open all day - I want to get on with real work! So if you email me this month, this is what you'll get in reply:
Thanks for your email. I'll get to it during my morning 'internet ablutions' (as William Gibson would put it).
If you need a quicker response than asynchronous communication can provide, please do consider one of the following (in order of preference):
* IRC - I'm on the Mozilla server in #badges, #foundation and #learning (see https://wiki.mozilla.org/IRC)
* Twitter - I'm @dajbelshaw
* Skype - I'm doug_belshaw
