Is The Pendulum Swinging Back to Email?

The TechCrunch news du jour is that Jason Calacanis has stopped blogging and is instead using email to communicate with his circle.

It’s interesting to note that after months (years?) of “email is dead” stories specifically around blogging, RSS feeds, and social media in general, the pendulum seems to be swinging back to email. You should read Jason’s words yourself, but his notes are mainly that there’s too much noise and self-promotion in the blogosphere, while email promotes intimacy and efficiency.

Not surprisingly, TechCrunch is a doubter, but we’ll have to see.
