Saying that email is soon to face it’s worldly demise is like saying “everything that will be invented has been invented.”
If spam, which now represents the vast majority of email, is going to die soon, then we might as well shut down the instant messaging networks, the “blogosphere” (whatever that is), all VoIP lines, etc. now. While we’re at it, lets just shut down phone service too (cell included), since at least one anti-spammer (feigning seriousness wherever possible) still gets direct marketing calls. I certainly would hate to see all these services die a painful death.
The death of email…right. Someone is going to solve the problem, and make a bundle in the process.
