A Collection Of Misc Articles

I’m in a clean-up mode in my e-mail and blog pile. For the first time in almost two years, I’m beginning to feel caught up. I have less than 250 e-mails (combined) in both my personal and work e-mail inboxes. This is a lot since once I open an e-mail I either (a) delete it; (b) respond immediately if possible; (c) file it in a folder on that topic; or (d) leave it in my inbox for future reading (i.e., it’s too much info to digest quickly) or for future response (i.e., it requires more time than I have).

It always begs the question of how late can you respond to something. Yesterday, I stumbled upon a e-mail from someone in Europe that wanted me to add their pharmaceutical site to my blogroll. I clicked on the link, reviewed the site, and added it. It took me less than 5 minutes, but the kicker was that he e-mailed me almost a year ago.
