My head is spinning. There are just so many communication outlets hitting me at all times I almost don’t know who to answer first.  This was me on Tuesday morning:

Sitting on my bed in my apartment, personal laptop open:

1) listening to a conference call on my personal cell phone

2) getting AIM IMs to my bberry

3) getting gchat  IMs on my computer

4) work emails landing on my bberry

5) personal emails landing on my bberry

6) work emails landing in my Outlook

7) gmail emails arriving on my laptop

8)  aol emails being routed to my gmail, arriving on my laptop

9) using Salesforce.com to send a copy of an email blast to a coworker

10) while checking the weather online

11) and updating my FB status

there’s too much!

Right now I’m sitting at the desk in my hotel room in New Orleans and have the following windows open:

1) my blog

2) Facebook

3) Twitter

4) Gmail

5) outlook

6) AIM

but all those messages get routed to my bberry on top of any texts I might be receiving.  I’m getting them all through multiple outlets and I find myself checking my bberry even though I”M SITTING AT MY COMPUTER.

This is unbelievably ridiculous.  I’m in a digital overload.
