Handle Emerges With $9.9 Million for New Approach to Organizing Email - Venture Capital Dispatch - WSJ

A new attempt to get a handle on messaging and personal information management

"Despite the ability to build Notes apps that the creators thought would develop into various corporate knowledge management systems, email turned out to be the most important feature of Notes, Mr. Kapor said.

Since then, “it’s become a victim of its own success,” he said. “The death of email has been announced over and over, and not only does it refuse to die, but it becomes more and more central to our lives.”

Handle’s team developed its software after studying ways that people try to organize themselves that are not working, Mr. Carolan said—flagging emails, emailing reminders to themselves, posting reminders on their calendars and dragging them forward, using legal pads to make daily lists and so on."
