Notes & Transcripts

A new message service known as “Evergram” could be the digital universe’s equivalent of a message in a bottle. The free website offers a way for users to send video messages and set them to arrive on a specific date to coincide with weddings, graduations, or other important events. Evergram co-founder Duncan Seay says he got the idea from a motion picture in which a father with terminal cancer uses a video camera to record messages to his unborn son. Seay says technology today makes the process even easier, because all someone has to do is record a 15-second message with their smartphone camera or webcam, upload it, and select a date for it to play. The site allows users to put the message in an online album that can be available to the public or restricted. An example of such a message might be a congratulatory message for a couple to view on their wedding day. Seay says it may even be possible to send a message to people you may never met. He says, “Currently the system is based on a time trigger. Conceivably, you could set a date for your loved one to receive a message far into the future.”
