Description

Hello everyone! Welcome to Episode III of the bi-weekly 'Life Without eMail' vodcasting series with co-hosts Claire Burge and Luis Suarez.  In today's vodcasting episode we will continue to talk some more about *'eMail - What's Wrong With It?'*, where we are truly thrilled to have with us special guest speaker +Paul Jones . Paul will be sharing with us the story of his own journey on having done #noemail  for nearly 4 years now; how he got started with it, what triggered it, what reactions it created with his peers and students, what are some of the main issues with today's email (ab)use along with what's stopping us from moving away from email into more open, social and collaborative spaces. Here is *a short biography* from Paul Jones:  'Known as @smalljones on most social networks, Paul Jones is a Professor at the University of North Carolina with appointments in the School of Media and Journalism and the School of Information and Library Science as well as founder and director of ibiblio.org, a 24 year old site for free software and free information. Jones has been #noemail for 3 years 9 months and a few days.' ---------- We look forward to seeing you all joining us live on this week's vodcast at 16:00 UK time (noon EDT) with guest speaker Paul Jones.  There will be a live Q&A session as well during the live vodcast, so you can share across any potential questions you may have for Paul himself. Come and join us! It will be fun! The hashtag for this vodcasting series as well as the 'Life Without eMail' movement will be #noemail   Let’s go! Let’s do it! :-D
