From the Editor
For most people, e-mail has been a fixture of our working lives for as long as we can remember. Recently the idea has emerged that maybe we don’t need email to work productively, and that there are other communication tools that would be better, faster and more efficient. Is e-mail ready to be tossed on the scrapheap, and what would it mean for information managers if it was?
And speaking of tossing things, you may have heard of the scandal the Ontario government is dealing with over the not so small matter of deleting e-mails and documents related to the $585 million controversial cancellation of two gas-fired power plants. Last Friday the OPP launched a criminal probe into the deletion of those government records. Big, big oops.
In addition, in this issue I raise the question of our rapidly ageing and increasingly obsolete federal privacy protection law (PIPEDA) and provide some key takeaways for those who were unable to attend the Canadian Institute’s Forum on Records Retention that I recently co-chaired.
Finally, I participated in my first ever “Twitter Chat”, the transcript to which is linked in the Twitter section at the end of the newsletter. Happy clicking and happy reading!
