Jeremy Zawodny: E-mailing myself. Quote: “Am I the only one who does this? I get an idea (sometimes via browsing or a suggestion from someone on IM) and don't want to lose it. But I also don't want to be interrupted by taking my hands off the keyboard. So I just send myself a quick e-mail.”
Comment: I do it all the time too. I also send email to myself when I check my phone messages. My out box becomes a record of who I interacted with in the past week (I have to write a weekly report on my activity – don't ask). [Serious Instructional Technology]
nope, you are not the only one. I actually have a listserve set up that i send stuff too, so I receive the email back into my inbox and archive it on a password protected website, it is very handy when I'm on the road and need to look something up from webmail or the like.
