Email Will Be Transformed

A social network for the office. That’s where it’s headed and I’m happy to hear an ex-Facebooker is working on it.

Office workers want easy to follow task lists for individual and groups, posts or DMs over email, and simple collaborative brainstorming and idea connecting sheets. A built in Pinterest masonry style page to share inspiring images would be beneficial too.

Email will be transformed. It’s a frustratingly beneficial tool, making communication easier and more burdensome at the same time. Google kind of solved it with Priority Inbox and automatic rules. Iffft is also a wonderful automation tool.

The new email ties old email, social, and instant messaging without leaning on one more than the other. In other words, the new email is a blend of Facebook, Microsoft Outlook, and Skype.  The calendar is also ripe for disruption.

It’s not always that glamourous.
