    Software For The Full-Stack Era

    The history of software is dominated by companies that automated how the biggest companies in the world did business.

    As an email startup CEO, I hear it every week. “I hate email. Email sucks. Why can’t anyone fix it? And why would you want to spend your life working on something everyone hates?” Email is an obvious target for blame, since we collectively send 183 billion of them every single day.
