A more efficient email
Why is our email static?
I use gmail, which is essentially a secure website that I can log in to and people can send messages that are then translated into tiny mini pages where the information is presented.
I don't seen any reason why the information in my newsletters has to only be relevant to that particular day, ex. "Today's Top News Story" etc.
In a world with live email vs. static I would only ever need to get one email from anyone...ever. It would then be populated with live content, updated daily or monthly, whatever the case may be. With the social tools we have available to us, we get live updates all the time and they don't come in the form of constant new fragmented email alerts that cause my phone to vibrate in my pocket.
With live content, communication would be greatly streamlined and conversations could be held in a more consistent form. We already do it with chat functions, I purpose we just merge the two and give people the ability to give permission to certain trusted entities.
What do you think?
