Website of the Day: Fuzzmail

My friend recently got on a roll about a co-worker he thinks is "unprofessional and uneducated" because her e-mails are filled with typos and misspelled names. His rant got me thinking about the fact that most of us have convinced the world we are great typists and spellers when really e-mail services, programs and even web browsers have been doing all the real work. I can't imagine what my letters would look like if they were written on a typewriter instead of a computer, but I can promise everyone would think I'm a dunce.

If you are in the mood to be transparent and honest about your typing skills, check out Fuzzmail, a site that records the act of writing and lets you send it as an email. Any of your "dynamic changes, typos, pauses and writeovers are captured and communicated." Meaning your friend gets a flash email that shows your email just as you wrote it. The creators made the site because they wanted a "more emotionally expressive alternative to email, so that an emailed love letter does not have to look the same as a business letter."

The site is free, all you have to do is type a message and fuzzmail will record what you type. When you send the letter the recipient will get a private web link to read the message replayed in the way that you typed it. It's certainly a refreshing way to communicate.

I think the point of it is to allow people to see your typing and thought process. I am pretty sure there is a hundred different ways to get free email that you wouldn't go to for desperate emailing needs. Think of it as something a little more personal and artistic? :-) BTW I have a pair of red pointy heels that I adore so much I don't wear them to keep them pristine ;-)

There's something very interesting about this. It might be funny if you were angry writing email to see how you initially wrote something then went back and made it all PC ;-)
