The value of email

From DSC:
I post this because I’m glad to see that email is still kicking tail! In 1990, I was hired at Kraft to help rollout email to (then) 66 plants across the country. The project got scrapped, but I kept at it as I believed in the power, efficiency, and productivity of this new tool (that is, email was new to Kraft in the early 90’s).

By the time I left Kraft, email usage had spread throughout the company and applications even resided on top of the email system. The VP of HR could communicate to every employee within seconds — something that was unheard of before email.
