Here’s a neat idea. Ever think about sending yourself a letter to be delivered in the future? Well FutureMe.org offers a service that allows you to send an email to yourself (or others) up to 25 years away.
After contemplating the obvious, 1) will this service really be around in 25 years, and 2) will i have this same email address in 25 years, I started to think about the tough stuff. What would I actually say to myself? (sounds like a great creative writing exercise to me)
So for now, I am going to do what I have done numerous times before when testing new software (blogs, emailing software, ftp) … and just simply send myself this familiar message, “just testing to see if this actually works”. And if it does work, in 25 years, I may just give this another shot and try to be a bit more profound.
