Can you solve some email problems for the world?

Email is overloaded. Too many emails, too little time. We still consume email as if it is 1995! I am personally averaging two apologies per week to people whom I have failed to respond in time. email_overload_alerts

Gmail has solved spam issues to a large extent for it’s users, other email providers are still struggling with spam.

More than spam, it’s missing of legit emails which is bothersome.

We at Morpheus have some ideas and are looking for a few smart techies to solve a few problems around reducing the email overload.

Do you think you can solve a few? Then apply to The Morpheus program. You must be a guru in all of the following POP, IMAP, Hypertable/BigTable, Javascript, Java, PHP, and you walk on HTTP, web security standards, Firefox/Chrome Plugins, REST-ful APIs in your dream. Send some cool code of problems you have solved in the past and your vision around solving some of the issues related to user experience, information overload, organization, closing the loop, etc. and we may work with you in the next 4 months (and also put some money) to bring the product to life for the global technology market.

Are you game? Come discuss with us.

Update: It is the company we help you build. You are the founder/CEO whatever.  Thought we should clarify that we are not looking for someone to just “code”.

  • This is an absolutely critical problem to solve. I also suspect the same approaches – at least for the content bits – will be applied to filtering noise/organizing the mess that soc nets are becoming.

    What kind of problems exactly you are concentrating on?

  • indus

    Overload problems. Getting 100 emails a day problems. Not able to properly prioritize problems. Not able to follow up problems & many more related one.

    Soc nets are increasing the noise & the noise is also landing into my inbox. How do we bring this all together?

  • Some content awareness is critical. The apps will need to know whats frivolous, what needs action/response, and what belongs better in – say – GReader for later consumption. Needs a chai to discuss details over.

  • How I've dealt with email overload:

    1) Use Gmail.
    2) Zero-inbox concept – only emails in my inbox are those which I need to act on. Everything else is archived.
    3) Turn off social networking emails from the settings on each service like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn.
    4) Awesome filter+label combination to prioritize emails.

  • Its easy !

    Out of 100 e-mail, in 80 e-mail you are in cc (just fyi) and 20 mails requires your action.

    Just create a filter, for incoming e-mail, in which you are in cc. So your inbox is with only 20 e-mail, that need your action !
