Email wrong way to network and do project management, BUT how do you get everyone on board?

I’ve posted this question on Quora.com, btw.

For the umpteenth time I’m involved in a project that necessitates online planning and discussion between associates in different states and towns. And for the umpteenth time I’m finding myself fighting a losing battle to get people into some form of network (zoho, facebook…ANYTHING!) vs. having thousands of emails flying every which way. It’s like herding worms…. like trying to explain the superiority of telephone over telegraph. Two question really: 1. I’m looking for some good links that articulate how effing INSANE it is to manage/network a project by email. 2. A good strategy to get people to start USING the network and STOP doing it all by email.
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
