Update 7: Giving up on work e-mail and Wiki happiness

Luis Suarez gave us another update on his venture to give up on work email. Interestingly he remarks this week more emails were sent to him. He thinks this has to do with all the meetings he was in. Because people could not reach him using social media tools, they started emailing again! This relates very well to what Andrew McAfee calls "slack". For social media to be used, you need some slack in your work/work day. I wrote about that some time ago.

Luis also pointed to an interesting Wikinomics post titled "Wiki collaboration leads to happiness". This post has an interesting figure comparing wiki's to email. I agree with Luis that this figure can be applied to other social media tools as well.
