Provocative thesis: email is an example of the failure of federation.

The API is frozen because of the gigantic size of the deployment. The API is inadequate. Spam has destroyed email as a result. We cannot fix it, because getting the API right early didn't happen.

@sigg @ceejbot the fact that I can't run my own mail server without massive time investment to combat spam means it aint exactly flying high. Same goes with my companies email server, it's not smart to run your own because it's easy to fail hard.
