[Ending] It's all about the email. Ugh, what?

The session's goal is to enlarge the horizons of the people building the open-source way of email. It might contain traces of heavy metal because I use this music to inspire people.

I will ignore our current technical limitations and build you a picture of a reality that could happen in the not-so-far feature with the email as the main protagonist.

Let me provoke you with some crazy and not-so-crazy ideas on how I, as an everyday consumer, see the future of email.

  • I imagine a world where my email is my identity, and I can connect with my wallet to manage my digital world.
  • I wish my email could automate things for me, such as auto-replying to usual requests without me setting it up.
  • I need my email to be secure, encrypted, and in my pocket device.
  • I want to communicate by email with my (AI) overlord.
  • I want to receive only positive emails when I am sad.
  • I want my email to be intelligent and to propose a TLDR of a long e-mail.
  • I want ...

Thinking about the future has no limitations. It depends on us to build it.
