Email Sucks What's Next
Convener/Note Taker: JAM
Why email sucks, why email's good and what we would create if we could.
Here were some things which we came up with about email:
Good - Distributed
Good - Standardized
Bad - Hard to prove authentication
Bad - SPAM!!
Good - Used by nearly everyone
Bad - Not real time
Good - Easy to use
Bad - No way to enforce "no forwarding" policies
Bad - Not designed for a lot of uses, i.e. public threads.
We came up with a small plan as to what we wanted to do. Who knows if that will get anywhere, but it's still interesting to think about. What we came up with was something similar to Wave, but with better "access controls" and we wanted it to be peer to peer.
