Liberating space-time from email

Living Life Offline by jamierubin.net →

In writing about going as off-line as much as possible, Jamie shares how he handles emails:

The other decision I made is to only check my personal email on Sunday mornings. I’ve found that there is rarely an email message so urgent that it can’t wait a few days to be read and responded to. To that end, I’ve added an auto-responder to my personal email. It just lets folks know that I received their email, but that I only check and respond to email on Sundays, so there may be a delay in response.

I’ve been pondering how to handle this sort of thing since I am off-line often when out and about in the further reaches of civilization while living in my camper.

Jamie’s auto-responder is an elegant idea and gives him free agency to respond to emails on his own time. In this day and age of relentless instant-on communications and resulting expectations of instant replies, he’s reclaiming his space/time to do as he sees fit.

Wonderful and liberating idea.
