About the Author

Matt and Jay met in Williamstown, MA, where both were working for Internet companies. As things would have it, they both ended up in San Francisco a few years later, where they came up with the idea for FutureMe.org. They created the site in their spare time (maybe a total of 40 hours of work) and launched it in 2002. Jay does design. Matt does programming. Jay is currently a designer at Amazon.com and Matt is an MBA student at the Yale School of Management.

"Dear Future Me" is a fascinating book that allows readers to take a glimpse into the minds of others; their secrets, their dreams, their goals, their hopes, their memories.

Some letters are humorous, witty, and charming; while others are touching letters of love, hope, expectations, and remembrance to their future selves. Some letters may be confrontational or letters of warning or advice. Either way, they all add up to an enticing read and will make you take a good look at yourself and what you expect for the future.

I purchased this book and found it to be interesting and humorous at times. For the reader with the entirely unhelpful and bitter comments because she was not included in the book, please look at the comments and read the letter, it was clear that it was not a guarantee. But back to the actual content-- it was interesting to be allowed access into people's most private thoughts about them and for them. It wasn't always great literature so to speak, but a unique commentary on perspective.

I was one of the ones who got the email. And I was published. And I bought the book for that reason. BUT, it isn't why I wrote the letter, in the beginning. I felt honored to be able to share my story and, hopefully, influence someone else, which is why I made my letter public on the website. The email I received was explicit that you may or may not be published; I didn't find any trickery in that email.
I read the rest of the book, though. It was a great collection, and the authors did a wonderful job combining the letters from all walks of life.
It's a great time capsule, one I am honored to have even been considered for, let alone published.

Just like Chicken Soup for the Soul, only better. Because this is real life.
