Isn't it interesting to see how email has evolved from Baby Boomers, to Generation X, and to Millennials (Generation Y). This Boomer remembers when he first began to really use email at Teachers College in 1994 when he was in a month-long program at the Klingenstein Center and was introduced to an email program called Pine. Then, he thought, "Hmmm, clever way to communicate with people."
By 2005, I wrote an article "A Head of Eeeeeshmail." I believe it describes precisely what was going on with email at the time.
I hope that our newest generation — the Zs — will take control of this and help bring it all under control.
For now, check out this video and see if you can relate to what it is saying about email.
