On The Menu: Examining E-Mail With John Freeman

mmm_2-3.gif

The newly named editor of Granta magazine, John Freeman, joined today’s mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, to talk to hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven about his new book, The Tyranny of E-mail.

“I found [e-mail] was just getting in the way of pretty much everything in my life,” Freeman said. “I couldn’t read if I was attached to the computer, it was changing my emotional make up, and it just felt like it was time to step back and have a considered look at what just happened in the last 10 years with e-mail and how it’s reorganized our days and our lives.”

But the book Freeman ended up writing was not just about e-mail and how much there is to deal with every day, but about the history of mail and “information overload,” which started with the telegram, he said.

Also discussed: e-books and the future of publishing.

Tribune Employee Handbook –Must Read!

lat08d.jpg

The new Tribune employee handbook is out! And it’s as packed with wit, wisdom and wise cracks as anyone could wish, meaning it’s much more fun to read that the company’s official products.

Rule #1: Use your best judgment.
Rule #2: See Rule 1.

HARASSMENT POLICY (SEXUAL & OTHERWISE)

Working at Tribune means accepting a creative, quirky, intelligent, odd, humorous, diverse, opinionated and sometimes annoying atmosphere.

(This all depends on where you sit.)

DRUG POLICY

If you do not use or abuse alcohol or drugs and fail to perform the duties required by your job acceptably, you are likely to be terminated.

(How great is this?)

E-MAIL, INTERNET, COMPUTERS & CONFIDENTIALITY

It’s good judgment not to put in writing what you don’t want printed on the front page of a newspaper. Or posted on a web site. Or heard on the news.

(We’re guessing that some journos must think this means their copy, as well.)

And, the new 48 inch newspaper will be published tomorrow! Can’t hardly wait.
