Yesterday, morning, I received the following email from Andi:
That was the entire email. It is the way we communicate at InterFace, because we understand each other very well. With just this one line, Andi informed me about an article. Thanks, Andi!
For me, it was the announcement of the day. Here is the headline and a summary of the article:
IT Company Wants to Outlaw Office Emails
A French enterprise wants more Facebook, instead of emails at the office. Three years from now, the employees of the IT service enterprise Atos Origin are supposed to no longer write electronic mails – instead, they are to use social networks. The intent behind this change: waste less time.
To me, this sounds like a stroke of genius!
After all, Atos Origin is not just some dubious Nobody. They are Europe’s leading IT infra structure provider. For instance, a short time ago, Atos Origin took over SIS (not a small enterprise, either) from Siemens.
In some way or other, I am glad that Thierry Breton, the boss of Atos Origin, thinks along the same lines as yours truly.
So what was the first thing I did just now?
🙂 I copied Andi’s email into the InterFace Social Network!
