Submission + - The future of email is Twitter (thetechblock.com)

thetechblock writes: "The recent launch of Outlook.com has got me thinking about email. The new Outlook is pretty slick, but it’s a hassle to change email addresses. And email addresses are too complicated anyways. You have to remember a username and domain and TLD. This doesn’t correlate well to real life. We typically remember people as “John Doe,” not “John Doe from 6th Street in Austin.” So, why do we need email addresses that are name@place.anotherthing? It would also be nice to have everything in one place."
