Gmail Delay Send: Google Apps Script

Are you facing Email overload? No worry! Gmail Delay Send, a Google Apps Script allows you to schedule emails to be delivered on a specified date and time. "Using this tool you can ensure your email is sent to its destination at a time when you can capture your recipient's full attention," explains Blair Kutzman.

For example, receiving an email at 4:59 PM on friday might not receive the same attention as an email received on Monday at 10:00 AM.

To start using the script simply open this spreadsheet and follow the instructions contained within.

"In 2011 over 107 trillion emails were sent to 1.97 billion internet users. Studies have shown that the average person can only effectively process 50 emails in a day. That leaves 100 emails per person per day that are not processed effectively. How can you be sure that the emails you send fall into the former category and not the latter?"

Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) 2012 Announced

On June 2nd and 3rd, volunteers around the world are coming together for the Random Hacks of Kindness Global Hackathon.

Born in 2009, Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) is the brainchild of a partnership among Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, HP, NASA and the World Bank.

The RHoK international community is over 4000 strong, encompassing not only computer programmers but other tech-savvy do-gooders, as well. This group of unlikely collaborators works together to define challenges facing humanity in local communities all around the world, and then to rapidly prototype solutions during an intensive weekend of round-the-clock work.

RHoK Global in June 2012 will be taking place simultaneously in 21+ cities globally, from Seattle to Santo Domingo, from Philadelphia to Prague. Googlers will be attending the events in San Francisco, Prague, and other locations, and we hope you can join us.
