What is the worst technology that has happened to the business that you are in?

For me, I think I can say it is email.

But wait jeff, you say. Email makes communicating easier. We can share files and more so quickly.

Yep. Too damn quick. And trying to make it through all the emails we all get everyday is not quick at all. Before it existed did we feel the need to communicate so damn often?

But now, it is the key reason so many people are always connected to work. That people have to point out that when they take a day off or even go on vacation, that they will not be checking email.

Even worse are the ones who do check while off.

While it has made some things easier, I think it's done far more bad things to business and culture in general.
