Today Adam Smith, the mastermind behind Xobni’s mission of “fixing email,” deserves a pat on the back; Adam has been named one of MIT Tech Review’s 35 Young Innovators Under 35. Adam joins the ranks of previous winners such as Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Kevin Rose (Digg) as well as this year’s winners including Jack Dorsey (Twitter), JB Straubel (Tesla Motors), and Dries Buytaert (Drupal). Adam is only 23, so he has 12 more years before he hits the 35 y/o limit for this award. I’m betting they’ll make it an exception and give it to him twice before he is old enough to run for president.

The Xobni team is very proud of Adam and excited by this outside recognition of the accomplishments we see internally every day.
