While the cliche “information overload” is a tiresome exaggeration, I would argue that we may be a bit information-disjointed. We’re constantly trying to communicate with each other. Between Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, blogs, instant messaging, and email, the different social media can be a bit overwhelming. Sure, there’s Google Wave, but it seems like most people are using it for work ; what about personal communication?

Mozilla has tackled this problem with Raindrop, a prototype which combines communication media into one neat little package. The best part about it seems to be that it doesn’t want to compete with what we already have; it simply brings it all together and perhaps organizes it for us along the way.
