Slashdotted by proxy, almost?
2004-01-19

This story is just weird. It looks like they combined every rumor about email they could, and threw them all together. We've been trained with the "No Comment" pretty well, but I've got to believe that "Google last year purchased an e-mail management software maker" has to refer to their purchase of our company, Neotonic. What Neotonic has to do with the email theme of their article isn't really clear, however. A trip to the WayBack Machine would have made it obvious what our Email Management software did. But hey, the above quote also made it to Slashdot...

They could have at least mentioned our name. They mentioned the name of Jim's company (Outride) when they quoted him.

Or maybe they were refering to something else. Like I said, the whole thing was confused...
