The Changing Face of E-Mail: Turning into Opera?

Wired News reports on The Changing Face of E-Mail from the Inbox e-mail technology conference:

"During his keynote speech at the Inbox e-mail technology conference, Eric Hahn, CEO of antispam firm Proofpoint, called on software developers to stop treating e-mail inboxes as places to dump memos and start thinking of them as control centers that combine e-mail, instant messaging, voicemail and other communications."

The article talks about:

– Doing away with the outdated e-mail folder metaphor

– Combining IM (chat) and e-mail

– "Start thinking of them as control centers that combine e-mail, instant messaging, voicemail and other communications"

– "Gross also predicted that e-mail software developers would begin to integrate RSS readers into their products, combining the two functions in one product"

– "Advanced e-mail search is also gaining in popularity. The feature allows users to leave all their e-mails in a single folder, where individual messages can be found later using fast searches"

Sound familiar? 🙂

Unfortunately, the article doesn't even mention Opera or M2.
