Email, Exposed

Want to know how your email usage stacks up?

The results of our informal email survey provide some food for thought (though clearly not much science). Inspired by a Journal article earlier this week entitled “Why Email No Longer Rules,” we asked readers to tell us how many emails they sent on Monday, and a little bit about themselves. They could respond by email, commenting on Digits, or Twittering. Here’s what we learned from our 48 respondents.

Averaging the responses together, readers sent an average of 32 emails on Monday.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
