Re: Two Lions coming from two sides; One deer to hunt
I've always felt that email programs did not understand communication. They are rigid, treating messages as files, with all the restrictions that come with that. All the interfaces have basically been the same -- linear and brittle, giving the user little flexibility to turn that flow of communication to meet their needs. Certainly they have not been agile.
Now we have a new machine-based approach. We've had other ones, maybe these are better. Maybe not. As long as we look at email as "content" and not a "message" we may be headed down the wrong road.
And didn't "invitation only" used to be called "Beta test"?
