This is either a sad, deeply disturbed idea or something that is very optimistic. I haven't figured out which but the truth probably lies somewhere in between. Go to FutureMe.org to find out more about this site that allows you to send an email to yourself sometime in the future. They claim that over 112,000 people have done this so far.
There is no guarantee the email will ever arrive as they have only secured $58 in donations to date. The other snags are that people change email addresses, SPAM filters might block the messages, and the entire operation could go out of business. Besides those minor details I am warming to the idea of this Internet Age Time Capsule. Though for the time being I'll leave it to a more reflective and prolific writer like the BlogDog to compose messages worthy of being read sometime in the future.
