Email belatedly.

I've been experiencing a similar email condition to my co-worker, Matt Cutts which is to say the holidays provided little respite to work or communication and, again like Matt, I'm also receiving an impressive number of non-Googler emails which require preperation and care and a response if I'm not to feel like a dark-hearted ass.

I started on a campaign to work through these. In November I had ~21,000 legitimate unread emails. I'm now down to ~6,000. I'm starting to respond to messages as old as last fall.

If you get this kind of email from me, please accept my apologies for the delay. I find it's sometimes to fun to receive these as if they were ocean-faring messages in a bottle, a snapshot of an earlier era. A wonderful, digital tintype.

Um, yeah, how's that sound?

    Um ... who are you again? The guy who used to run this site didn't post to it much.

    Write me back, k?

    Isn't it great how modern technology makes communication virtually instantaneous? I love it!
