eWeek: RSS role in the future of e-mail
Brian Livingston has a great piece on the future of e-mail (hint: RSS). Citing the recently released Newsgator 2.0 and Newsgator Online Services as the harbinger of things to come, Livingston projects what RSS fans already know -- you can significantly cut down on inbox clutter and random surfing by using an aggregator to pull information from the net and organize it in a way that's meaningful to you. Here's the money quote:
Eventually, a large percentage of the one-to-many communications within an enterprise could be handled using RSS instead of blasting group e-mail to everyone. E-mail in-boxes would be reserved for urgent, one-to-one messages that require a quick response. As spam filters improve, your in-box might even once again become a quiet place that you look forward to visiting.
