Project brief: Email has changed from its original vision of a simple asynchronous communication system to a core application for digital personal information management. In its current form, Email lets you glance all of your information at once. Mechanisms introduced into GMail (Google's email client) such as starring, labeling, sorting into folders, importance markers were initially proposed as a means to classify and de-clutter the mailboxes. Instead they have overloaded it with information. We propose a solution based on tagging, threads and visualization techniques to make the email system much more organized and effective. We mainly focus on threads and our understanding of the life-cycle of communication to arrive at the solution.
