Dubbed Snowl, the application intends to treat all messages as the same and let the user get emails, RSS feeds, IM and Twitter messages and even aerts from social networking sites in one reader.
“It doesn’t matter where messages originate,” said the organization in its labs blog.
“They’re alike, whether they come from traditional email servers, RSS/Atom feeds, web discussion forums, social networks, or other sources.”
A prototype has already been released that picks up RSS/Atom feeds and Twitter messages and has a choice of two interfaces for viewing them.
The group wants to add in more functions as time goes on and is asking users for their feedback.
