> Raindrop is being designed as a message system specifically for how people
> communicate in today's web environment; i.e. email, mailing lists, twitter,
> etc. The system itself is a CouchDB daemon service that knows how to pull
> down your email and twitter (process and index them) and then can serve them
> back as JSON objects. Raindrop includes a built in messaging web
> application that also gets served from the same place, you'll see demos of
> it in the videos.
> We only had the chance to do a couple iterations and are working to develop
> some real web apis  which could be useful for integration of contacts,
> messages, and other data Raindrop provides.
> I'm not suggesting that gnome-shell pulls in Raindrop today and starts using
> it, we are definitely not ready for that. I am hoping that gnome-shell
> people will find Raindrop interesting and that we can start looking at how
> we could work with each if it makes sense.
> Let me know if there are questions. I still can't seem to run the shell
> with my thinkpad nvidia card but am looking for another system to try it on.
