What Your Email Address Says About You
June 3rd, 2010
Email has come a long way since its inception. This great infographic from the guys over at The Oatmeal pokes fun at different types of addresses and stereotypes its users.
Way back when I started using email daily, it was through a Unix terminal at school. Then, when I had email at home, I juggled a few Hotmail accounts and one that was provided from my ISP. By the time Hotmail was bought by Microsoft, I had already moved on.
Now, I use Gmail. I’ve got a few different accounts and addresses that are all managed by a single one. It works really well and I use Merlin Mann’s Inbox Zero concept to keep my inbox empty. How about you guys? What kind of email address do you use?
