It started today. October 29…back in 1969…. about 10:30PM The message received: LO
The very first email.
The programs you recognize and that we use today were really created in the 80’s, and not many major tech improvements with how we use email since then. (IMO) Unless you think advancement is more storage so you can keep thousands of emails. (ahh, no)
What’s next? Some say it’s Slack or Basecamp.
Change? We really need to talk people like Apple, Microsoft and Google into agreeing to taking us to a new email world. They pretty much control the platforms for all the email you see, send or delete.
What changes would you like to see with YOUR inbox? (besides fewer emails from your boss)
TRIVIA: #1 requested email change I see on the internet is to be able to change your email address, but keep all your previous email. hmmm
Why today? Today is the day, back in 1785 the first Spanish mules made their way off the boat in Boston; a gift for George Washington.
It’s National Mule Day! (usa)
It took the vision of a Tennessee Senator back in 1985 to have this day become reality. The senate didn’t make it an official government holiday…but the country grabbed it with both hands. (see what I did there?)
And maybe instead of getting your ass to work…it could be a great day to tell someone to “kiss your ass” in celebration?
The team is always thinking outside the box….in this specific case, outside their shipping boxes.
Besides being excited to get your purchase, you can also have some Halloween pumpkin fun…and get talked into downloading and using their AR App… And probably training their Machine Learning for some future scary fun.
Business is always more than just selling and shipping stuff people want. It’s about bringing a smile to your customer’s face. (all while helping your organization at the same time)
