Mashable has an article on Luis Suarez, a man who believes that there can be a digital life without an overloaded mail box.

Reportedly, in less than three years, Luis managed to go from communicating through email, to using social media software, while working full time for IBM andliving in the Canary Islands: "The last six years of his 13-year IBM career have been spent working remotely from Gran Canaria, a place which he describes as 'a paradise island,' and not just because his boss is 6,000 kilometers away."

How do you manage to work remotely for a major technology company without making email your main tool of communication? This is what Luis had to say.
