Maybe e-mail isn't still the King of Apps

Today, Lawrence Lessig declared e-mail bankruptcy, saying he was going to stop trying to get caught up on replying to his backlog. A colleague says, “This is Larry coming to grips with becoming a public figure, and recognizing he can’t relate to e-mail in the way he did when he was just a law professor,” but Lessig apparently still doesn’t really “get it”: he still plans to respond to all future e-mails.
