giving gifts of self

New web discovery: postcardX:

"postcardX attempts to accentuate the randomness and instantaneousness of human connection. it tries to break down social barriers with well-loved packages of self unleashed upon an unknowing recipient. it tries to give moments of happiness, wonder, and wow! (which may extend into life-long relationships) by the simple act of giving gifts of self."

Basically, you post your snail mail address, people send you stuff in the mail, and then you write about it on the site. Visitors to the site are greeted by a random address to send their somethings to. It's one more in a long line of sites that blur the line between real life and the virtual world, and I love it.
