Innovation in the Messaging World — Meet Raindrop

October 22nd, 2009

Most of us receive messages from many online sources — email, instant messages, tweets, Facebook messages, links. Raindrop is a new, experimental Mozilla project exploring how to manage all these sorts of messages. Raindrop aims to make communications more about the person and less about the technology in which the message was created. It’s the brainchild of the team responsible for Thunderbird.

You can find Raindrop over at Mozilla Labs, among a range of other projects exploring how to innovate at scale.

    If I may propose a radical concept: Could the “team responsible for Thunderbird” actually… y’know… release Thunderbird? I keep hearing about these wonderful things that will be in 3.0 but am still stuck with 2.0.0.ancient and all its two-year-old bugs, and the last beta has been sitting around rotting for more than a month. Or is this new Raindrop project supposed to replace T-bird? And when would that happen?
