Roland Tanglao points to a survey of emerging Personal Information Managers software applications. “There is a new breed of PIMs emerging that I’m *very* excited about. They are all addressing, in different ways, that fact that email clients have been unspeakable abominations for the last few years. The email client paradigm was okay when it was the primary method of “net communication” and you got 10’s of messages a day. In the current world of InstantMessages, 100’s of emails and adhoc group forming …. they just don’t cut it. We need better Intelligent Agents.”
Gary Burd has a similar posting on what he terms “information clients”.
