Short Assignment 6 Alex Mendoza The story that interested me most was about Mr. Patterson in the second article. That article really took the email disaster to another level. I was baffled with this story when I read that this email potentially dropped stock value. This email had so many extremely negative results that I found so unnecessary, but that is the reason we have to be so careful in the technology age. Everything we say is there forever. Mr. Patterson’s background definitely explained to me why he wrote the email. He is a hard worker and he wanted his employees to get some spark to put in the effort and dedication that he feels for his company. The problem with an angry email is that it only has to upset one employee bad enough to be spread to the entire world with the Internet. If Mr. Patterson would have called a company-wide meeting and given this lecture verbally, I do not believe he would have had all the controversy. It’s so easy with today’s technology to eliminate the time of meetings and just type up and email, but when anything controversial or emotional is being discussed, we really need to get back to the old method of word of mouth. It is harder to get up in front of all those employees and deliver the same angry message. If I were in Mr. Patterson’s position I would use that as my rule of thumb. If I couldn’t get up in front of my employees and give the same angry speech to their faces all looking at me, it definitely shouldn’t be sent in an email. It is also important to think if anything you type can be used against you, because if it can it will. I think growing up with technology and social media, our generation is a little more aware of how permanent the words we type and send can be. Whether we’ve learned the hard way ourselves, or seen it happen to someone near us. Mr. Patterson is from an older generation that used email to send a very old school message for convenience and had no thought cross his mind about the repercussions. Hopefully our generation will come into the business world with a better understanding of when to use technology to our advantage and when things should be done in person.
