Email is actually a tremendous, decentralized, open platform on which new, innovative things can and have been built. In that way, email represents a different model from the closed ecosystems we see proliferating across our computers and devices.
Email is a refugee from the open, interoperable, less-controlled “web we lost.” It’s an exciting landscape of freedom amidst the walled gardens of social networking and messaging services.
Truer words have not been written.
Knotable: not an email killer. It’s a application built on top of the email platform. A way to handle threads better. But also a way to use the asynchronous back and forth, longer form features of email to better replace an even more annoying phenomenon — the droning face to face meeting.
