Digital Time Capsule

FutureMe offers a simple concept for sending e-mails to yourself or to others in the future. Just fill out the form with an e-mail address and message, and choose the date for the message to be sent. You can choose to have the message sent on any date ranging from today to Dec. 31, 2035, and select whether you want the message to appear on FutureMe's public message board.

FutureMe could be used for purpose as mundane as daily reminders, a digital time capsule of sorts, or, as Greg Burton of GeniusNow suggests, a performance management or brainstorming tool.
