email bankruptcy
 n.— «The term “e-mail bankruptcy” may have been coined as early as 1999 by a Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor who studies the relationship between people and technology. Professor Sherry Turkle said she came up with the concept after researching e-mail and discovering that some people harbor fantasies about escaping their e-mail burden.» —“E-Mail Reply to All: ‘Leave Me Alone’” by Mike Musgrove Washington Post May 24, 2007.
