Email is still the killer app of the Internet: more than 300 million
people use email every day, tens of millions for over two hours
each day. These numbers have been increasing exponentially, with
no end in sight. But what's new in email? The Internet's hottest
Search-based email initiatives from Stata Labs and Google are resetting
business and consumer expectations for the email experience. The
results? Search-based email saves people time (sometimes hours per
week) and also unlocks a wealth of information buried in email archives
that is effectively inaccessible without search. Increased efficiency
and productivity aren't the only hot new issues in email -- email
security, RSS feeds, blogs, spam and privacy round out today's email
Dr. Raymie Stata, our Pub Master for the evening, is currently
the CTO and Founder of Stata Labs. He was a search pioneer at Compaq,
DEC, and the Internet Archive. As the co-founder and creator of
Bloomba, Dr. Stata is leading the way in creating innovative new
search-based email products.
At this Power Pub, join Dr. Stata to discuss the key issues and
changes as email rapidly evolves:
- Google has gotten into the email game -- how and when will
Microsoft and Yahoo respond? How do you intend to compete with
- Why is search-based email so key to the desktop?
- Will anyone be able to compete with the desktop search developments
in Longhorn -- the next version of Microsoft's operating system?
