Blogs are extremely popular nowdays. I spend most of my non-business related surfing time on blogs. As the number of blogs is increasing every day, I often come across something innovative. Coveno is your typically looking blog, but it has a twist – it is, as the authors call it, web’s first public email account.

It works like this: if you want to subscribe to a newsletter or a mailing list and don’t want to share your e-mail address you can use a default e-mail address. By doing this, as soon as the newsletter is sent, Coveno will automatically publish it on their blog. On this way you can read the content you want, but it nullifies your exposure to spammers. Quite simple, but very useful concept.
