    Cameron Adams, Jochen Bekmann, and Dhanji Prasanna have started in an effort to help you get through your email inbox 20% faster, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
    The three Australians formerly worked on Google Wave before quitting to work on email at Fluent. They identify email as a means of communication that has "stagnated," so hopefully their product goes over better than Google Wave.
