Gmail Creator Says “Email Will Last Forever”

Paul Buchheit, “father” of Gmail, co-founder of FriendFeed and currently employee of Facebook was contrary to what analysts say of all kinds around and said at an event in San Francisco that “email will never disappear, even if the robots kill us and take control of the planet.” By chance, the subject of debate in which the subject participated was “We can kill email?”.

For Bucheeit, although news appear at any time to facilitate communication, “we are simply not prepared at this time to live without email” and cites the old online correspondence is still critical to creating accounts on other web services and notification of new messages. Ironically, the researcher never used Google Wave, the current email-killer of her former employer, “there is the call time is in my inbox,” he says.
