If you’ve ever spent a lot of time in an email thread and wanted to post its content to the web, free web service CC:Everybody eliminates the need to have a blog or forum and lets you make that thread public.
When signing up, CC:Everybody creates a public email address for you, to which you can forward or include email threads and make it publicly viewable on their site. It’s a strange notion, sharing your email, but it makes sense under certain circumstances. Say, for example, you’re giving tech support to a friend (or combining your brainpower with theirs to figure out a yet-to-be-documented problem). After you figure it out, you may want to share it with the world so other people can benefit — but everyone has a blog or forum that they post on (nor does everyone have the time to rewrite an entire how-to for the web). Thus, you can do it quickly and easily by forwarding the thread to your Cc:Everybody address.
Of course, with this comes the responsibility of making sure you don’t make anything public the other parties want to stay private. CC:Everybody automatically hides all email addresses within the public version of the thread, but it doesn’t hide names, phone numbers, or any of the other text you might send over email. You can easily fix this by submitting the thread after the conversation is over, and going through and deleting or changing the private text before forwarding it to your Cc:Everybody address.
