Why email is a better virtual assistant.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/x2sbzW)

Google is inventing something better than Siri, Cortana, Alexa or even Google Now: artificial intelligence email.

Interacting with a virtual assistant is mostly about talking. You talk to the assistant. The assistant (usually) talks back.

This would be super convenient if your assistant were available to you all the time. But it's not. If you're driving, or at the movies, or in a meeting or beyond a mobile data network, you might not be able to get access. Also: Talking is a natural user interface, but it's not easily reviewable, searchable or made asynchronous.

What if every virtual assistant interaction showed up in email? And what if your virtual assistant actually lived in email?

It appears that Google is exploring this idea:

Make sure you are participating in the discussion on changes to the reseller relationships at the GWC forum. These changes impose a much higher criterion on membership, and will result in many resellers leaving the program.

If these changes are important to you, then it is important that you participate in the discussion.

I think Android TV would have been a smarter move. OS independence is not really the solution.
