This Raindrop thing seems pretty cool. I’ll use it even if for no other reason besides its ability to separate the bac’n from the real-human-conversations-that-I-care-about email.

Unfortunately, using the current demo version requires running your own server locally, which is a high barrier to entry. But keep an eye on the evolution of this project; it might be just the thing we need to take control of our inboxes again.

(When I say “take control of our inboxes” I am thinking of my Gmail inbox which currently has over 10,000 conversations in it, a third of them unread.)
