Email has become something we all take for granted. Not too long ago, we used to ask people if they had an email address. Today we just assume everyone has at least one. When someone needs to get in touch with you, they’re more likely to ask you for your email address than your phone number.

Many people didn’t realize at the time just how revolutionary this change was.
