This blog explains a business idea that I thought of building one day which allows me to communicate with my baby daughter even when am not around anymore, by utilizing CPaaS APIs I can schedule Voice, Text, Emails to any number or email and let it execute automatically when it verifies that am dead.
I never had the time to build it, however I still think it solves a big problem for many people, i did the research and due diligence and talked to many people, there was a 50% who found it amazing and 50% who found it creepy, believe it or not the most people interested in the service were Bikers followed by law enforcement officers.
Since I didn’t get the opportunity to build it I decided to share it with the world, hope you find it useful and I would be the first subscriber to if you decide to build the service.
A Message From Heaven
We are all used to the idea that when we’re dead we can’t communicate with our family or loves ones anymore, as parents or grandparents we all want to stay around as much as possible to give our loves ones an advice when they graduate from school or collage, This is going to change our service is aimed to keep the communication going between you and your loves ones even when your gone. now you can relax using CPaaS to ensure your messages will be delivered as per your schedule to the numbers you set up in our easy to use portal.
Life is pleasant.
Death is peaceful.
It’s the transition that’s troublesome
“Isaac Asimov “
At my age, I’m often asked if I’m frightened of death and my reply is always, I can’t remember being frightened of birth.
