'Younger people see email as something older people do' — Don Rippert

Jjijijpijp

Rippert, chief technology officer for Accenture, the world's largest consultancy, was quoted thus by Alan Cane in an interesting July 11, 2007 Financial Times article on future directions in technology.

Rippert continued, "I thought it was a novel, next-generation technology, but to young people it's, "You should post to my page on MySpace, you should text me, you should IM me, why would you want to email me? I don't even check my inbox any more."

Voice mail?
