HipChat to Sponsor Second Leg of the Message Not Received Book Tour

The chips for the book tour are falling into place.
Feb | 26 | 2015


Message Not Received rails against the overuse and misuse of e-mail.

That’s not to say that I’m categorically opposed to e-mail. (Who doesn’t like unsolicited sales inquiries?) I’m just anti-inefficiency. E-mail is a particularly ill-suited tool for collaboration and project management, and that goes double in the developer world. Although that was true fifteen years ago, the same range of powerful, easy-to-use tools didn’t exist.

It’s high time to educate others on the silliness of “collaboration” via e-mail.

For a long time now, we have not been able to accurately make that claim.

Researching the new book, I came across Atlassian, an Australian enterprise-software company that develops products geared towards software developers and project managers. Atlassian believes that a great deal of education is needed around workplace collaboration. Needless to say, I violently agree. After all, an Office-Space like approach to work seems so 1999.

The company has agreed to let users try one of its products, HipChat, for two months for free.
