Nathan Zeldes, an Intel engineer, has devoted his time and attention to taming the email beast at Intel. This past year, Nathan ran two pilots.

Three hundred engineers, at two U.S. sites, were in the pilot for Quiet Time. Every Tuesday morning, participants set email and I.M. clients to “offline,” forwarded phones to voicemail, refrained from setting up meetings, and put “do not disturb” signs in their doorways.
