In 2009 Google launched a collaboration site called Wave to show the world “what e-mail would look like if it were invented today.” In 2010, after a lukewarm response, the company killed it off for good. Now three leading people from the failed but iconic project, all of whom left Google in 2011, are making another attempt to “fix” e-mail. They recently began sending out invites to Fluent, a site that promises an alternative interface to operate a Gmail account. The service connects to Gmail using the application programming interface (API) that Google provides to allow other software to tap into its service.
