What's in a name
We’ve all had them, .gmail, or .yahoo e-mail accounts (or my fav, the .hotmail account). A place to put the junk you never check and the junk e-mails from mom that she thinks that you’ll think are funny. Here’s the intriguing thing to me, when people put personal data in the name to distinguish between other... Bettys. So email@example.com. By the way, how long does Betty plan to stay 31? I know, I know, forever. Or firstname.lastname@example.org. So we know Bill is old. But when will we get to the point where technology is personal enough that it can recognize your e-mail tag and send you content. So email@example.com gets Oakland Raider jersey discounts when he logs onto nfl.com. Or firstname.lastname@example.org gets a notification on Amazon.com when the last Twilight movie comes out.
