It’s so funny because if you tweet your lyrics and then you hear it in a song next week, you’re like, ‘Hey I had that same idea.’ I’m very secretive with my music. We have to send emails password protected. Because once that song gets out, you aren’t selling that thing.

Mark Feuerstein

If your loved ones are far away, and they’re uploading pictures, you feel like that’s enough: these loose strands through email, through social media, are going to supply this connection you have with that person.

I get up early and open my emails, write cheques, and answer the phone; whatever needs to be done.

I like to read the paper online. And I love email. And I love nothing better than to be interrupted.

When I go a stretch without tweeting, I will occasionally get an email from my mom, checking in. I always find this amusing but also gratifying: Thanks to Twitter, I can keep in touch with my parents and let them in on what I’m doing in a way that even the regular phone calls of a doting daughter can’t do.
I start a lot of things and purposely leave them unfinished. When I have a bunch of really long emails, and I need time to think about the response, I’ll actually start replying, leave them as drafts, and move onto something else mid-sentence.
Answering phones synchronously is very different than reading an email, sorting it, figuring out which bucket it goes in, and then responding.

Only my phone number and email are private because I don’t want random people calling me. But I like the ability to share everything.
Paul Buchheit

As with email, the recipient of a texted question seems to have the option to ignore it, while nevertheless saying, ‘Hello, lovely day,’ and so on.

I have readers everywhere: from a radiologist who decides to compliment me on my writing while inserting a probe to check my ovaries to 80-year-olds who send me emails. And, of course, women my age everywhere.
What is the role of a public intellectual in the age of Twitter and soundbites? Is it to share your thoughts for the public good, or is it to curate the heaps of hate emails, tweets, and right-wing articles that trash your intellectual and social work?

Email will probably be around for many decades to come. It’s hard to say what will happen 20 years from now, but email has been around for decades, and it will likely be around for decades more.

Every case involving cybercrime that I’ve been involved in, I’ve never found a master criminal sitting somewhere in Russia or Hong Kong or Beijing.

I think anybody who uses email in the center of our life needs encryption.
Customers buy Basecamp without ever having to interact with us. If they do have a question, we handle everything via email. We’ve been in the business of automation. We’ve never really valued full service.
I see email being used, by and large, exactly the way I envisioned. In particular, it’s not strictly a work tool or strictly a personal thing. Everybody uses it in different ways, but they use it in a way they find works for them.

In 1998, it was possible to make a big-screen romantic comedy about email. Yep, email – the same medium we often think of now as boring and even annoying.
It borders on inconceivable that Clinton didn’t know that the emails she received – and, more obviously, the emails that she created, stored and sent with the server – would contain classified information.
To me, emails are a little bit frustrating. I think that the telephone is much preferred because you get the sound of the voice and the interest and everything else you can’t see in an email.

I was extremely curious growing up. I taught myself how to sew, French braid, and cook. When I wasn’t creating things with my hands, I was learning more about tech. I was experimenting with email at nine, had my first cell phone at 13, and was truly obsessed with the Internet as a teenager.
My favourite emails are along the lines of, ‘My 14-year-old doesn’t read much, but I gave him your book and he finished it in two days.’ This has been the most rewarding experience.
After only two or three weeks in office, we discovered we had a backlog of 100,000 emails sent to me. We had a backlog of a thousand invitations to speak at places all over the country – and all over the world, for that matter.
Wray’s FBI is stonewalling on Clinton email investigatory materials, Strzok-Page texts, Comey records, McCabe records, FISA court abuse records, Spygate records.
When it comes to the teapot tempest that is the Hillary Clinton email imbroglio, the real controversy isn’t about politics or regulations. It’s about journalism and the weak standards employed to manufacture the scandal du jour.
20 or 30 exclamation points can go a long way to making the tone of your email excited and cheerful.
I don’t know what an email is.
As soon as I wake up, I read my email to see what news developed overnight.
In general, I write for ages 12 and up – although I’ve received emails from readers between the ages of seven and seventy. My books are science fiction.
Email is a wonderful thing for those people whose role in life is to be on top of things, but not for me: my role is to be on the bottom of things.
Workers in government, the arts, and industry report that the sheer volume of email they receive is overwhelming, taking a huge bite out of their day. We feel obliged to answer our emails, but it seems impossible to do so and get anything else done.
After my kids go to bed, I check email. It’s about having that balance.
When I was sent the script for ‘Homeland,’ I didn’t think anything of it. Three months later, my manager rang and said: ‘They are interested in you.’ I read it and I realised, ‘Yes, I do want this.’ Then I got an email saying I’d got it.
It’s always nice when you see an email in your inbox that says ‘offer,’ then you read the email and go, ‘Oh, okay. Who’s doing it, what’s it about?’
Modern life has gotten so strange, we all get 150 emails and text messages a day, and it’s hard when things are moving that quickly to keep that sense of wonder about being alive.
I am amused when somebody tries to illustrate the first email using a modern keyboard and a finger reaching for the ‘2’ key. Wrong key! The @ was on the ‘P’ key.

I’m pretty sure people are going to start writing letters again once the email fad passes.
I do love email. Wherever possible I try to communicate asynchronously. I’m really good at email.
We can improve the utility of email by maneouvring its use in a constructive manner.
At a time when the Post Office is losing substantial revenue from the instantaneous flow of information by email and on the Internet, slowing mail service is a recipe for disaster.
If you want to get an email to Robert Redford, you send it to his assistant, and she prints it out. And then he will write you a letter, which is incredibly rare and incredibly classy. Unfortunately, I can’t be that removed from technology.
Anyone I don’t know, in my emails or texts, I just delete. If it’s someone legitimate, they’ll send it again.
I like to swim a few times a week. It’s relaxing, and no one can call, email, or text me while I’m in the pool.
Anyone with an inbox knows what I’m talking about. A dozen emails to set up a meeting time. Documents attached and edited and reedited until no one knows which version is current. Urgent messages drowning in forwards and cc’s and spam.
We’re surrounded by distractions. Whether it’s emails, phone calls, text messages, social media notifications, or people entering and leaving your workspace, those distractions end up eating a good portion of your time.
I read our emails every day and I know there are people out there who think I’m awful.
I’ve written everywhere – in hotel rooms, cafes, airports, and planes all around the world. Now I have a home office, and the wi-fi is really bad down there, which is great. If I make a date with myself to write from, say, 6 A.M. to 10 A.M. on a Saturday, the fact that no emails come in helps me focus.
Your morning sets up the success of your day. So many people wake up and immediately check text messages, emails, and social media. I use my first hour awake for my morning routine of breakfast and meditation to prepare myself.
People will email me and text me if they’ve found an amazing loo. I’m like, ‘How was the food?’ They’ll say, ‘Fine, but you have to check out the loo.’
Email helps me keep in touch with my family. I wouldn’t know what my extended family was doing every day if we weren’t emailing each other.
Thinking of that movie 'The Artist'; if anyone ever nee

Thinking of that movie ‘The Artist‘; if anyone ever needed to reach anyone, I’m just thinking they didn’t have cell phones, they didn’t have Internet, they didn’t have email, so I always wonder how it was back then where you had to be home if you needed to get a phone call; otherwise, people couldn’t get a hold of you.
Edy Ganem
I really don’t know what happened in reference to ‘The Butler.’ Mr. Daniels and I had a conversation. I had the script, the email that goes along with it in reference to the character, read the script, loved it. Then I never heard from Mr. Daniels again, and the next I saw was that Oprah Winfrey is now playing the part.
Stop running around, stop trying to return every email in your inbox immediately, stop cramming too much stuff into too few hours in the day. Sit down, shut up, and most importantly, be glad.
David Alan Basche
I think the longform email is exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.
I don’t use the Internet, as I don’t like living with lots of distractions. I have tried, but I found it a hindrance. as my sense of priorities goes out of the window and it pulls me out of my writing, particularly with email. I’d sit there for hours just replying to emails.
I know that my cell phone in Iran… is bugged, and they listen in, and my emails, I’m sure, are monitored inside Iran. They have my email address; it’s not like they can’t snoop on it.
Hooman Majd
I don’t have email.
Every major communication tool on the Internet has spam and abuse problems. All email services, blogging services and social networks have to dedicate a significant amount of resources and time to fighting abuse and protecting their users.
Responding to emails during off-work hours isn’t the only area in which you need to set boundaries. You need to make the critical distinction between what belongs to your employer and what belongs to you and you only.
Every time you write an email, it is in the public domain. There are all these ways where security is not as good as people believe.
I was in my mid 20s when email finally took off. Until then, the phone was my primary way of connecting with the people in my life.
Culture is a thousand things, a thousand times. It’s living the core values when you hire; when you write an email; when you are working on a project; when you are walking in the hall.
We get a ton of email; everybody does now. It gives us a kind of a pulse that you can feel. We hear people saying, thank you for being fair, for being balanced.
The Watergate is a hotel in Washington where Nixon operatives broke in to steal campaign information from the Democratic Party. Nixon’s people subsequently described that act as a ‘third-rate burglary.’ In the same manner, Clinton has described the FBI investigation of her email escapades as ‘a security review.’
My abilities on the computer are limited pretty much to iTunes and YouTube. I check my email as much as anybody, but I’m more old-fashioned in a certain sense.
When email and the Internet came along, I never publish an email address. I just stuck with this P.O. Box address.
While Google has given away pretty much everything it has to offer – from search and maps to email and apps – this has always been part of its greater revenue model: the pennies per placement it gets for seeding the entire Google universe of search and services with ever more targeted advertising.
I like the idea of separation of services. ISPs provide a pipe. Other vendors provide security. Other vendors provide email. When one party controls all the services, it’s a ‘synergy‘ for the company, but rarely for the consumer.
David Ulevitch
The Internet tempts us to think that because an email or a new website can be accessed in seconds that everything works at the same instant speed. Art is more like the growth of a plant. It needs time and space.
Most of the serious disagreement I get comes through email or social media, where people are more comfortable.
I personally think 3D Touch is a game changer. I find that my efficiency is way up with 3D touch because I can go through so many emails so quickly.
There will always be another email to get through; something to clean up, file, and organize; more errands to do. Which is why balance is so important. Life is a marathon, not a sprint.
The fact of the matter is that the true hits of AOL have always been its easy-to-use services, such as AIM, email, and Buddy Lists.
The distance between me and my readers is the Internet. I can communicate with them and respond to every email I get or every mention on Twitter.
Bob Mayer
A quick search through the U.S. Copyright Office’s website will show that email was first used in 1979 and has been registered under ‘Shiva Ayyadurai.’
I wake at 5 or 5:30 most mornings, make myself a latte and grab a cookie, write until 10 or 11, go have my favorite meal, ‘second breakfast,’ or grab coffee with friends, or play basketball. Then, around noon, I begin apologizing via email for the manuscripts I can’t get to.
Every day at Skype, I am able to connect with employees from around the world and engage with them on a level that just is not possible through a conference call or email.
Tony Bates
We haven’t evolved as loners, we need each other. It’s easy to believe in the illusion of technology bringing us closer together. But if you were to protest that and say, ‘I’m not going to use a smartphone, I’m not going to use email, I’m not going to use social media,’ it’s like you’re no longer a part of humanity.
It annoys me when contemporary films and television shows create artificial tensions that could easily be resolved by a quick email or the use of a search engine. ‘La La Land’ was guilty of this several times, as well as a more generalised aesthetic nostalgia.
One thing I can’t stand is when people – not our team, but other people – don’t respond. Everybody can email, everybody can text… using an email auto-response is not the world we live in.
Every morning as I begin my work day, my computer presents me with the usual array of garbage: email, Twitter, updates on the state of the nation, updates on the state of the sneakers I just ordered.
Just as it got easier to use email, it will be easier t

Just as it got easier to use email, it will be easier to use Bitcoin as people invest in it and become more familiar with it.
Gavin Andresen
It is no surprise that neither Hillary Clinton nor the Obama State Department agrees with our request to depose Mrs. Clinton concerning her exclusive use of her email account to house and send tens of thousands of official emails throughout her entire tenure as secretary of state.
In the U.S. – yes, sorry, the U.S. – surgeons and doctors usually give you their cell phone numbers, and tell you to call anytime if anything goes wrong. They often call to follow up after a visit, or go over test results. They have email.
People get emails from me at 3 in the morning.
Removed from ‘Gmail’ doesn’t necessarily mean removed from all Google servers. In fact, your old emails are the data set from which Google models our behaviors – the real product it is offering its advertisers.
Not that I’m bragging or anything, because I was shocked, but I literally got hundreds of emails from people during my time on ‘Project Runway‘ asking me out on dates. I had no idea that people would even care.
You can tell a lot about a woman by her email signature. Actually you can’t but for some reason people do anyway.
I believe that Secretary Clinton has said, has acknowledged, that that was not the best way to handle her emails back then… and has turned over all of the information and the emails and documents and now the server.
Many actors have protested about mobile phones going off in theatres, but the real menace now is people texting during a show. It may only disturb a few people around them, but for me, as an actor, when I spot them answering their emails, I am outraged.
I do a little fact checking now and then. Other than that its impact is simply that email has revolutionized communication for me, and my website has built up a community of readers, which is a lot of fun.
It’s just madness. First email. Then instant message. Then MySpace. Then Facebook. Then LinkedIn. Then Twitter. It’s not enough anymore to ‘Just do it.’ Now we have to tell everyone we are doing it, when we are doing it, where we are doing it and why we are doing it.
John Mayer is the epitome of the lead guitar player so I sent him an email with a bunch of my music and he sent back really detailed advice.
Ever since I’m done with Zim everyone thinks that I’m going to go back to comics. I’ve been flooded with emails asking me if I’m working on the new Johnny over and over again.
Oddly, a search for ‘jeggings’ in my email inbox shows that my first exposure to the phenomenon came from – wait for it – Mike Allen of ‘Politico,’ who helpfully explained the concept on December 20, 2009.
If I was at home, I’d find myself checking email and looking at the Internet when I should be working. In the library, I can get an awful lot done in a couple of hours, but it can become quite sociable, which you have to watch out for. There are a lot of people you can pop out and have a coffee with.
I remember, when we were starting Tinder, we were like, ‘We’re going to be the next Instagram!’ I remember sending my parents emails being like, ‘We got 300 members!’
Customers or employees are free to shoot me email. I may not respond to every single one because sometimes the numbers are voluminous, but I read them all.
I’ve been receiving a lot of emails and messages from folks that say, ‘Hey, my kid saw you and they’re so excited and it’s great that he can look at the NASA TV broadcast and see someone that looks like him,’ and I think that’s important.
When I created the email in the U.S., my mentor could have easily copyrighted it and taken credit for it.
You can teach people to sew, set up a fashion shoot, send emails, deal with the media, but what you can’t teach is a sense of style. You’ve either got it or you haven’t, it’s as simple as that.
I laugh about it all the time, but, for whatever reason, a lot of people think that I wear a wig. I get emails and tweets about people commenting on my hair being a wig. It’s one of the strangest but most entertaining things I’ve read about myself online.
At present I answer about 100 letters a month, and read 300 emails.
Garrison Keillor read several of my poems on ‘The Writer’s Almanac’ and I’ve heard from listeners nationally and internationally. That’s one of the great gifts of email.
Ellen Bass
I have received so many letters, messages, emails, testimonies of women whom I meet in international conferences, wherever it may be, who tell me, ‘It’s great that you have balanced life and work so successfully.’ I now think I have underestimated that, the ‘role modelaspect of my life, I must say.
