This Message Will Self-Destruct

NPR's Emily Harris reports on a software development company, Disappearing Inc., that's producing a program to create self-destructing e-mail messages. The life-span of the e-mail can be set by the user, and their automatic deletion can help to reduce the huge archives of e-mail that most companies amass.
