Snailmail meets Email

logo.gifThis is an interesting company “Earth Class Mail” it is just a pity it operates in the U.S. only. They scan your post, then you can choose remotely which to have opened and scanned or sent to you or junked. Given how electronic my life is, I would probably use it. I’m almost disgusted at myself that I would consider doing so … if they can make it pay, its a great idea and one of the few industries to traverse that difficult old-world to new-world divide. Those of us who were in the middle of the dot com boom will remember the many failed local delivery services et al which attempted to combine the Net with traditional delivery services. This isn’t the same, but it does make a change to see the web being utilized in a new way to affect the way we live the more traditional elements of our lives.
