Email Movie

email that plays as it was typed in

This would be a feature on email that would allow you to play the email as it was created, so with all the backspaces and all the edits in there. This would allow for better stream of consciousness writing.

I need this because I like to do the equivalent of venting at the top of your lungs over email, but it is very unsatisfying to do when you have to backspace every few words to correct an error. A solution to this problem would be to have the email play when it arrives at its destination in real time, so that I could slow down for emphasis, try to type fast to get across my frustration, and know that every correction etc would be recieved by the receiver and that they would know what I was going through. It would be much more like dancing with your fingers because you could do it in rhythm and slowly get faster or do funny stuff like make jokes and then erase them so they are not in the final serious version.

       Email should be plain text. Maybe this could be an attachment.

       I wouldn't like it to be in 'real time' for what I type. I like it otherwise though. I would be nice if you could somehow change the playing speed or something.

       From now on I will be writing everything in characters an inch high, in red, and converting it to something more readable afterwards. +

       I like it. There are web-based apps that let you draw something and then email the link to someone else. They are then able to play back the drawing process so this shouldnt be too hard
