Betty wants to help you with your e-mail

Mashable featured an interesting Web app this morning. The app is called Cc:Betty. Why is it interesting? Well, it claims to provide a space where long an convoluted e-mail exchanges among a group of people can be sorted out and clarified. Each e-mail thread that Betty is CCed on becomes its own little website. Photos and files are separated into their own tabs and the thread itself is converted into an organized Web page. Where have I seen something like this before? Oh, yeah, a wiki. It really sounds like the entire e-mail thread is converted and organized as a wiki. This site probably has a niche since there are many people that still don’t really like the wiki idea but are fine with e-mail and reading websites. Something to keep and eye on in any event.
