Bacn – new email term taking the web by storm
In an attempt to tackle our overwhelming inboxes PodCamp Pittsburgh 2 attendees addressed the problem at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh this past weekend. By identifying email we receive that isn’t spam and isn’t personal mail they created a term and an awareness. Bacn has been said to be the “middle class of email.” It’s notifications of a new post to your Facebook wall or a new follower on Twitter. It’s the Google alert for your name and the newsletter from your favorite company. 
 
The official Bacn website www.bacn2.com describes itself as “Email you want – just not right now.” Since Sunday people can’t stop talking about Bacn.
Be the first to get the full story on the origin of Bacn.
