Better than the Jumbotron...
This morning this link came via another maillist:
The mail was a so called "Kettenbrief" or "chain mail" if this is the right word in english. This guy wants to makes a mariage proposal to his long time girlfriend, but he does not do it directly but sent the mail out to 50 people unknown to him and now wants to see when and how his proposal reaches his girlfriend, who doesn´t know that the email connected world is participating.
For those of you who know german or know anybody who can translate it, read his poem and what he writes on his web site. It´s the weirdest and most romantic use of social networking via email I have seen so far.
Best regards from germany
Now THERE'S an example of the Strength of Weak Ties, eh?
