This answers the question of whether Zoe can consume RSS (it can already output RSS).  It can also post to your favorite weblog tool.  I still think the search based associations and simplicity of a Zoe-like tool would blow away conventional e-mail UI (in one of those insidious ways where the functionality was provided to standard e-mail clients and people slowly began to find that they spent 100% of their time in the new interface).  Rather than bring the Web to e-mail it brings e-mail to the Web (Yahoo mail and Hotmail just Webified the UI for e-mail clients).  This difference changes everything and could, in a fully realized tool, bring an order of magnitude more productivity to users (not just in reading and responding to messages but in publishing and manipulating content of all types).  [John Robb's Weblog]
