Every time one of my band mates sends an email, they send it to a barrage of email addresses. It is very difficult for me to explain that this is a highly inefficient and exposed.
Geoff has complained multiple times that he does not know which email is the correct one for me. Is this the answer to that issue? I think so.
So let me ask this question. Why is a myspace bulletin more effective than a simple email with the names and addresses of all of the people you know? Well, the answer is really quite simple. You are no longer responsible for verifying the address of each user. The relationship is one in which the receiver is responsible for one and only one point of contact, his or her self.
MySpace makes the user responsible. We need to make each person responsible for their own email addresses.
