OK, silly question time. What does this concept of streams have which is different from a mailing list?


Sounds more like he is suggesting improvements to mailing list interfaces than email itself.

That is exactly what I thought. "Stream" is the subject line. You mail to a group on some sort of listserve, which gives you a long-term history and a URL to give new people.

This exists in rather decent form in Google Groups already -- there is Google Groups for Business (with a Google Apps account) that gives you a great web interface as well as email interface all just for your company.
