I focused my last post on email Don'ts, so it was somewhat negative.
I am not antisocial. Just don't use me as a computer support person, corporate spy, philanthropist, programmer for hire, or search engine. I am also not currently looking for employees, especially in a foreign country.
However, I do enjoy reading and responding to mail that is interesting and relevant in some way, maybe blog-related feedback or in special topics on AI, mathematics, and programming. The key here is mutually beneficial information.
I like chatting with other bloggers, experts, entrepreneurs, and academics. I also respond to business requests, invitations, appreciation letters, and so on. I don't typically respond quickly though, unless the email appears urgent. The longer the response expected from me, the longer it takes for me to respond.
