Want to get more done? Try handing your Inbox over to someone else!

An article in the Stanford News [Stanford University's own newspaper] earlier this month has caught my eye.

According to Stanford computer scientists, "experiments show that email users are happy to allow a stranger to access practically all of their incoming emails if it boosts their productivity".

The research found that in the experimental environment, with assistant use, users completed twice as many email tasks than without assistants.

This research is an interesting take on options to tackle the growing problem of email overload.
