At IBM, we see it as reinventing the inbox. Making the inbox more social. Email is evolving in two ways because we now have many other social business tools. One is that it is a notification service that brings together all of our relevant information and activities. Two is that emails sent to us now are truly actionable — every message in that inbox is relevant to the individual. That’s what email was originally conceived for, and what it is becoming again.
Very interesting interview with Ed Brill on BNET. Ed is talking about IBM’s vision, how the Inbox is changing and becomes more social. Fits perfect to a blog plost I am just wirting on “the Sharing Generation”.
