if email is so passe, how come FB insists on sending me so many notification emails? for. every. single. action. just because i "like" a status update doesn't mean i want every single piece of the conversation. daily recaps or pure opt-out would work well but FB knows it needs to consistently bring users back to the site and the best way to do that is...email.

This is pretty stupid, she's talking about the death of opt in newsletters. Big deal, that's been pretty obvious for 2 or 3 years, probably longer.

Email is still used in business and will be for a lot longer.
