The E-Mail Time Capsule - say hi to yourself 20 years from now
I just came across a site, or rather a service, at Forbes. It's called The E-Mail Time Capsule. So basically this is how it works (by Forbes):

"Most time capsules involve cramming stuff into a metal box and burying it in a hole in the ground. It's a method that works --but it's so primitive. What if you could write an email to yourself, and be assured of receiving it twenty years in the future?

That's what we've done with this email time capsule. Simply fill out the fields below, decide how long you want the capsule to be sealed for, and hit send. We'll do our best to make sure the message gets delivered."

You can choose to send a message to yourself in 1, 3, 5, 10 or 20 years from now. Simple enough. Would you do it? Is this interesting, funny or just plain stupid?

Would you keep an email address for 20 years? Maybe, I would be 52 and stinking rich still having good health. My kid would be 22 and in perfect health and very good in school, my parents would be, hopefully, very old. Hummmm, interesting and scary at the same time. How would I feel reading my 20 years old email..?
