e-mail is a nearby-technology with planetary-scale connectivity, in a *socially* decentered way. Hold together by bubblegum and sticks. There is no project in sight that could "replace e-mail" (tm). We suggest to embrace and amend. Yes, it's a mess but it's also fun :)

@delta If we had been going in 80’s like today with instant messaging standard (it’s #XMPP!) there wouldn’t be #SMTP standard and planetary-scale connectivity.


How is email held together with bubblegum and sticks?
