Planetwide for travellers: Postal mail via email or mail forwarding: The battle is over, and digital has just beaten physical.

“Planetwide scans your mail, emails the scans to you and stores the originals. These then get forwarded to you when you notify Planetwide of an address to send them to.”

Via Slashdot, which said:

“…looks like a good way to help prevent identity theft…”

Strikes me this is a great tool for someone who wants commit fraud. This service, combined with Mailinator and DropLoad, means that I can conduct affairs as a real person without actually existing…anywhere.
