OPLIN 4Cast #654: “Superhuman” email probably isn’t

Posted in 4cast, and Email

I am really good at email. I have 230 message filters combined in my work and personal accounts. Between those filters and a ruthless policy of unsubscribing to most marketing emails, my inboxes are beautifully manicured gardens of delight and my archives are glorious memory palaces.

Because I continue to use my inboxes as “To Do” lists, I seldom reach the coveted Inbox (0), and it never lasts long. That’s why something like Superhuman, the invitation-only service aimed at people who spend more than three hours a day on email, caught my interest. But it seems as soon as I heard about Superhuman, the buzz turned bad.
