Boing Boing co-founder Cory Doctorow was sick of getting too much email. Even though
he was getting emails from organizations that he had had relationships with at some point, he was overwhelmed with email, so he began unsubscribing from everything and spent 30 days removing himself
from the lists of more than 3,000 email senders. Since what he calls, "The Great Unsubscribing," he is down to 10% of the unwanted email he had gotten before.
