There are blogs that are a addictive must-read – clusterflock is one of those for me. This just came across my reader – and I think it’s an different social take. And an unexpected smile.
Postcrossing‘s idea is simple – send a postcard, get a postcard from someone picked at random around the world. It’s kind of link getting a bunch of surprises by mail (remember – actual mail? In your mailbox? That’s not a bill or junk?).
How does it work? (from the website)
- request an address from the website
- mail the postcard to the address
- wait to receive a postcard
- register the received postcard in the system
Go to the website to read more on the specifics.
This reminds me of messages in bottle and having pen-pals in grammer school – nostalgia and poloroids.
