Luis Suarez, “How to quit email: full interview by Nora Young” (MP3 audio), CBC Spark, 2009/09/02

Luis Suarez is someone that I’ve known only virtually in the world of blogs for some years.  The interview was set up by Dan Misener, a producer for the CBC.

Earlier this week, I wrote about Luis Suarez and his quest to completely rid his life of corporate email.

Today, Nora talked to Luis via Skype, and if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by electronic communication, you’ll want to listen to this interview. In it, Luis explains how he made the leap from email to social software, the challenges he faced, and he offers advice to others who are thinking about cutting email out of their workplace diet.

    On a multi-boot Linux computer where Ubuntu has already been installed, adding on Manjaro Linux installs its own version of Grub (that I’ll call Arch-Grub) that is different but compatible with that previously installed (that I’ll call Debian-Grub).
