And you thought email was dead…

George Siemens, elearnspace, Sept 01, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I depend on email, and my main issue is not with the formal but that it's hard to integrate into the rest of my work (I want a nice email-to-database integration). George Siemens mentions Greplin, which is "a service for searching across multiple platforms: gmail, twitter, facebook, dropbox, etc." And email is being touted as a service with "platform capability". Well - that's too much. The only reason there's a "platform capability" is that email has really failed to merge with any other application. I want to see a "merge capability". So my email becomes part of my data, generically. It'll happen; give it time.
