Computer science professor Cal Newport suggests alternatives to our inbox-centered work lives. Kevin Free offers a deliberative yet friendly narration. Free guides listeners through a theoretical framework arguing that one should begin the workday with deep, creative work and write email responses significantly later. Newport further suggests that organizations help staff by setting protocols for how much and how often email should be used as the predominant communication medium. Free takes listeners through the theory of the "hyperactive hive mind," which expects instant e-communication responses. He recommends collaborating with associates by telephone or a casual "drop-in" visit. Indeed, everything old is new again. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
