Man Who Invented Email Died

Ray Tomlinson – the man who basically invented email as we know it today – died over the weekend at the age of 74.

Ray invented email back in 1971 – and is even responsible for using the “@” sign in email addresses.

He ended up winning a bunch of awards over his lifetime for email, but he couldn’t even say what the first email ever sent actually said.

Which is weird because the first words spoken over a telephone are a big part of history.

Back then, Ray Tomlinson had no idea he was changing the way we all communicated. Rest well, sir. And thanks for the thing that makes me never sleep anymore.
