How would you fix email?

too_much_email.jpgToday on the show, TED conference curator Chris Anderson talked to Jian about his beef with email... or as he calls it, a "giant rats nest of voracious demands on our time, energy and sanity." The problem, he said, is that email has reached the point where it takes considerably more time to read and reply to an email than it does to write one. To solve the problem, Anderson recently created the Email Charter, in which he outlines 10 rules to save email.

Listen to their conversation below, and let us know your thoughts. How do you handle a bloated inbox? What rules would you propose to fix email? Or is email, in fact, too routine and widely-used to fix?
