Great conversation about email the the long term viability of online resources such as FourSquare and Facebook. Emails to My Unborn Daughter is not the “Dear Sophie” google ad that you might be thinking of, but instead a real person who has been sending emails to his son for the last 5 years.
For the past five years, I’ve been writing emails to my son. Shortly after he was born in 2007, I created an email account in his name so I could write to him throughout his childhood and then turn the account over to him when he was of age. Upon opening the account for the first time, he’d be greeted with an archive of his childhood as seen through his father’s eyes.
