Sending Messages across the World

Even though emails have been around since 1993, and we send billions of emails every day, I’m still impressed by how they work.

In no time at all, you can effectively send a message to someone on the other side of the world. This is something that really is quite remarkable. Emails have become a part of our daily lives, and each of us have no doubt sent countless emails to people everywhere.

Our working lives

Emails are now a part of our working lives, and there are very few jobs around that don’t involve some sort of electronic mailing system. Realtors, job agencies such as, writers, teachers, administration staff and many other people send emails each and every day, and we would be lost without them.

Our personal lives

When was the last time you sent an email to someone you know? This form of communication is an effective one that can help people to stay in touch. My little brother sends me emails about his latest video game ventures, and my friend emails me with some daft pictures from time to time.

This form of communication does not seem to be going anywhere, and that has to be a good thing. Way back in 1995, I sat in a lecture room at college and sent emails around the room. This was as far as you could send them, and even then the technology seemed pretty good. The trouble was that if you were typing an assignment, an email would interrupt your typing, and you couldn’t ignore it. Thankfully that has at least changed!

What about your emails?

Do you send many emails these days, or are you a texter? Chances are you will have to send emails if you work, or you’re a student. It doesn’t matter who you are and what you do, it seems that this under-appreciated form of communication is here, and it’s here to stay.
