ITM 501 Mod 4 disc response to Richard Marshall
While some people find it hard to empty their email inbox, a professional in managing information and information technology has about nine email accounts. The nine email accounts are significant and require regular checks. Some are work-related, and others are for chats. For security, work related emails are independent of each other (Fuchshuber, 2007). The numerous emails sound intimidating, but the messages exchanged through these emails make the system functional (Haley, 2011).
Some emails are reminders, and there is no need to keep marking calendars or maintaining diaries. The marking on the emails explains its nature; a task that is due, an expired deadline or just information that is necessary. Management of human interaction emails is easier due to their scarcity (Haley, 2011). Backing up some emails is vital, whether human interactive or auto-generated. The information is the savior in cases of legal implications.
Fuchshuber (2007) advises that for easier management of data, three email accounts are commendable. General interaction is necessary and should take one account. The second one should serve as a storage device for any valuable information. Due to the inevitable registrations made every day, the third email account should serve as the junk. Nobody needs all the unnecessary information required during subscription; they keep flooding the inbox, which is annoying.
As Haley (2011) explains, print media are slowly losing their market due to easy access to information and low costs of digital media. However, digital media are raising a generation that is lazy and wants everything delivered to the table. It is better a click than having to rummage through newspaper pages in search of information. Thanks to digital media, a person only access areas of interest. Articles in print are well edited to enhance good quality. Digital media, on the other hand, are likely to lose their fans because of grammatical errors. After all, most scholars appreciate a well-written piece and pays attention to it regardless of its content (Haley, 2011).
