Email turned 40

Ray Tomlinson sent the first email in 1971 forever changing the way we communicate, do business and live.

So as email goes into a midlife crisis is it going to buy leather, get on a Harley Davidson and scooter off to Mid Life Crisis land.

No I think it’s more likely going to pull a Robert Mugabe, hang on to it’s power. For all the addictions of facebook and social media I am not switching on there for my serious conversations. Wouldn’t want my boss or bank manager perusing through my university Saturday night escapades.
