Continuously email a document to yourself

I'm trying to get into the "download everything from your head" mode, but the issue is that I download to papers that I lose or to programs (like Backpack) that I forget to check.

Is there any web app that can email a text document to me every time it's updated? For example, it would be great if I could make a note on Backpack and have it emailed to a given address every time it changes.

Thanks very much,

Don't forget about Thunderbird

If you use Thunderbird as your e-mail client, you can setup an RSS feed just like an e-mail account. You can then have Thunderbird check it as often as you check e-mail.

This works great for me. New entries in my RSS feeds show up just like new e-mail. I too had a problem with checking RSS feeds, but once I started really utilizing this feature of Thunderbird, now I have no trouble anymore.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
