@reply-all (2008)

@reply-all is a webpage I've authored to enable users to construct emails, and as they do so the application checks and retrieves the author's text against all existing - previously written - text that matches the current text. The user has the option to insert this text by pressing the 'tab' key, which injects the phrase that matched within the database. Additionally, each new user, after writing their first email, generate a brief profile of themselves, made from questions that bring about the body and time in which they composed this email. When matching text is found, the profile of the corresponding user comes up as well as the text they wrote. There is no "To:" field, rather the application chooses who to send the email to within the network of previous users, based on who's text the current email matched the most.
