The journalist Paul Carr is referencing an earlier article where he talks about his misconception that email is dead. http://pandodaily.com/2012/10/17/yesterday-i-thought-email-w...

Even pg this week mentioned that email might not be the optimal tool and there might be a better tool to solve some of the problems (http://paulgraham.com/startupideas.html), and there is no shortage of email is dead posts and comments here on HN.

So, an ex-Techcrunch writer uses himself as a source for that assertion? This is why I call him a writer instead of a journalist.

There is no possible way to infer that Mr. Graham was saying anything close to email being dead, simply that it's sometimes used for things that might be better handled other ways.
