US Postal Office, Gone Wayward

from the we-could-be-the-next-dotcom-phenomenon dept

You?ve probably heard about this before but the US post office wants to offer free email address to all US homes. Not a great idea but not a bad one I originally thought (other than the obvious logistical hurdles). Although, I was rapidly illuminated in this article that they plan on delivering your email through the conventional mail system! The Authors takes us through the multiple reasons why this isn?t a good idea (silly and competes with private enterprises) and I have to agree.
