Rhona and I both use Yahoo Mail as our primary e-mail addresses. Indeed, the occasional comment to this blog gets e-mailed to me via yahoo mail. i have a good feeling that I will always use Yahoo mail as my primary e-mail address. it's synched up to this, Facebook, YouTube, and all the other social networks out there. Plus, it's where most of my non-work mail goes.
Which has me thinking: should I get Autumn a yahoo address now? I have my name. So I looked. Turns out that her name is taken (Yahoo Mail has 200 million users). A version is available on gmail. Which makes me wonder. Should I get it?
There's an argument to be made that we should let her pick her e-mail address. However, we picked her name. If there's no problem with us picking her name (and her middle name), why is there a problem with us picking her e-mail address and password? She can always change her password down the road when she wants privacy from us.
What do people think? Should I get her an e-mail address? Should we send her little notes now that she can read later?
