This is pretty cool electronic implemenation of a more traditional pasttime:
Send an email time capsule to yourself
Mark Frauenfelder: Forbes has a free service that lets you send an email to yourself and have it arrive in 1, 3, 5, 10, or 20 years. I’m going to have my daughter write one to herself. I’ll write one to myself, too.
This capsule must be submitted by November 30th, however. Forbes isn’t the only one to do something like this.
futureme.org has been doing this for a few years, a better implementation than forbes. they let you choose the exact date to send the email, up to 35 years in the future.
One of the differences here is the level of backup protection that Forbes is implementing. That’s certainly something to consider.
