An Unparalleled Tool

Email is an unparalleled tool for responding rapidly to a large volume of messages - but then again, if it weren't for email, you wouldn't be receiving all those messages in the first place. The technologies we use to try to "get on top of everything" always fail us in the end because they increase the size of the "everything" of which we're trying to get on top.
