My inbox is my timeline …
While sifting through some old emails I realized that my inbox reflects most of my life – it is indeed my true timeline not what I made-up on Facebook!
I’ve been using Yahoo email since 1998 and Hotmail since 1996 if remember correctly (though I don’t get to use it much now) – both have documented my life ever since. I can see myself growing – my first job interview email, my appointments, meetings, plans, disappointments, happy moments … my conversations with my wife, and family, and friends. What I purchased/sold/owned or talked about over time. What I liked and shared and how I expressed my frustrations on numerous occasions. I can see my life recorded there, it is a real snapshot of my life albeit not that visual.
To Hotmail and Yahoo, you certainly missed something you always had with you!
