Who would have thought?

"Research shows if you get an e-mail from someone you know, you actually open it." *

I wonder how much funding went into sponsoring that particular bit of research?

* From a Metro article about a new Toronto advertising campaign encouraging every Torontonian to send spam an email to five of their friends and invite them to come visit.

Update: The website for this advertising campaign is here.

Re: bah
You could be perverse and only read emails from people you don't know.

Re: bah
I do wish people wouldn't leave posts like that lying around. Particularly when I'm drinking coffee.

Does anyone know where I can get a keyboard dry-cleaned?
