One New Thing: IM / Email.

I realise this article sounds a bit too much like an advertisement, but I found that the gentleman from ICQ quoted in E-Mail And IM Get Closer is right in suggesting that email and IM can and should become more converged. Speaking from the point of view of someone who is used to talking to and working with people located in different geographical areas: email is what you use when the person you want isn’t online. I notice the article mentions instant email translation: imagine a world where you could IM someone who doesn’t speak your language and have instant conversations with them – now that would offer some amazing possibilities for collaboration! (I found the link to this article on TechnoBiblio.)
