No More eMail

05/13/05 | by JAdP | Categories: General Thoughts

Yahoo! allows me to get posts to groups to which I belong in RSS, either via the Y!RSS page in My Yahoo! or via any feed reader. Many of the mailing lists and other groups to which I belong also now syndicate their articles and posts so that I can read them through a feed reader. Newsgator provides an email address that I can use for those email lists that haven't become up to date, and I'll get them in Newsgator. I've done that with a few lists, and no spam has shown up in Newsgator.

I've abandoned my decade old email address, as our company has stopped using the IASC-dot-com domain for email because the spam had gotten out of hand. We've also instituted a policy of using aliases for certain purposes, rather than the actual user id for that email. After several months, the new email address doesn't have any spam.


My inbox will only have real email in it. When I want more general information, I turn to my feed reader, either Newsgator in Outlook, or Newsgator online, or one of the open source readers that we're investigating like RSSOwl and AmphetaDesk. And when I want the full experience of the syndicated site, I go there through my blogroll on BlogRolling.com, or one of the open source aggregators were researching, like MagpieRSS and zFeeder.

I think I've just freed up about two hours every day. The first hour after I login, and several times throughout the day that I was checking the spam filters to assure no real email was mismarked.

I'm going to faint. XX(

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
