We need to defeat this bizzare cognative dissonance people face when they have to re-evaluate the place email holds in their mind. It's not some useless relic of the last generation to cast off in the course of chasing the shiny new.

Email:

- Federated
- Decentralized
- Built with open standards
- Fault tolerant
- Enjoys a wide variety of open-source clients & servers
- Has widely available implementations for almost every programming language
- Already being used for software development at scales greater than GitHub-style development has ever dreamed of

"Email? Yuck"

Get your spookoweenie hacker gear.

It's warm.
It's got weird symbols.
It's got dead languages.
It'll make you more good looking.

37 hoodies sold.

Either way the EFF gets a nice payday out of this too.
