What a great idea.

Outbox wants to recreate America’s oldest social network: the US postal service.

Alright, there is the mail security issue, in order for this to work, someone has to open your mail and it has to be scanned and stored. But to have all the mail visually in one electronic place and schedule due dates for bills, receive personal mail and store everything in one place forever is incredible.

And what I love about it most is that more and more new startups are trying to actually break into the real world with their innovations and ideas. Beyond the silly check-ins and virtual badges, companies are trying to solve real problems.

Fantastic first attempt.
