Timeful: My E-mail Policy

Due to increased demands on my time and the need to minimize distractions, I am posting an official policy on my use of e-mail.

This policy is effective 11/27/2015, and is available at:

http://go.barik.net/timeful

E-mails sent to my personal account or University account are now batched. This means that your e-mail will be intentionally delayed against one of the following time boundaries (all listed times are in Eastern time):

  • Monday through Friday: 9 AM, 1 PM, 3 PM, 7 PM. If you send an e-mail after 7 PM, I will receive your e-mail at 9 AM the following day.

  • Saturday and Sunday: 9 PM only. Weekends are reserved for time with my family.

If you need to contact me urgently, you may send me a text message at 251-454-1579.

Social Media Addendum

  • I check Facebook once a week, usually on Friday night.
