Gmail on the move
By Dave Winer on Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 10:13 AM.
In 2005, Google came out with an email service, and like a lot of other people I signed up. I liked it because it kept spam out of my way. It was fairly miraculous how it did that. On the other hand, I didn't like the way they bundled emails into conversations. But I eventually became accustomed to that, even though to this day it's hard to manage. permalink
I was more or less a happy Gmail user until they started trying to turn it into the dreaded Google-Plus.  permalink
Gmail is nice to have, but I don't want to blur the line between private email and public writing. The two activities should be as far apart as possible.  permalink
I wouldn't mind paying to use Gmail. But this isn't a good thing they're doing, trying to turn email into something else.  permalink
