spell check is nice – but I want emotion check

Before I send an email, I want a button next to spell check that says “emotion check”, when I click it google grabs the words and phrases (+ some historical sets) and computes:

1.  The negative/positive tone of the email relative to other emails I send (0-1 scale)

2.  The relative negative/positive tone of the email to all emails sent by all people (0-1 scale)

3.  The negative/positive tone of the email relative to emails I send to that person (or that person receives)

4.  Most impt: the expected response rate and time to respond.

5.  The expected negative/positive tone of the response.


I bet you could pull this stuff out using: words and phrases in the email, the recipient, gender?, ethnicity?, historical emails sent and responses, etc.

Cap it with a suggest function (a la spell check), that tells you to add a smiley face here or there, or switch words/phrases.

Eventually, get to a “health” meter next to all of my contacts showing the imputed positive/negative stance of our relationship based on message flow, I like it. Time for Gmail Labs to get crackin’.
