The #noemail concept is a new one to me, a move to get away from email as a source of business communication.

After an initial reaction of "how would we get things done?" I thought about the amount of time spent emailing a colleague sitting two desks away, and how collaboration and interaction could be enhanced by simply walking over and having a conversation.

There are a host of stats that give you pause for thought in this post: Death to Emails: The Trick to Sending Fewer Emails at Work along with some thoughts on what you can do to start cutting down on emails.

I love the concept and the possibility of increased productivity, collaboration and interaction - so I'll be starting to take some of the baby steps over the next few weeks and see how I get on.
