You lost me at "email is broken". Email isn't perfect, but contending "The system is broken, so we built another layer on top of it" makes me think you haven't given this a lot of thought.

Indeed. Of all the mechanisms i use to communicate, email is by far the least broken. It's not a walled garden, it's not tied to a device, it doesn't cost anything, nobody blocks it, and the concept of somebody not being on the email network is unthinkable. If only everything could be as awesome as email.
