Internet meme time!

Check out Forbes e-mail time capsule project. It's a total rip off of futureme.org but it seems a bit more reliable (Forbes, Yahoo, and some no-name consulting company are behind it). The concept is simple: you write an email to yourself and they will hold on to it and deliver it in a set amount of time. Forbes suggests 1, 3, 5, 10, or 20 years. It's an interesting way to see if you live up to your dreams and hopes. I sent myself a 1 and 3 year letter. They both were based on the same basic form - a summation of where I am now, and where I hope to be in 1 or 3 years. I also "called" some things - basically where I think I will be, and some things I hope not to fail at.

Go ahead - write yourself a letter. Hell - write me a letter using futureme (forbes requires email authentication) and tell me where you think I'll be in a year.
