E-Mail History

From Boing Boing:

“Today marks the 41st anniversary of the first time humans had a frustrating interaction with the Internet. CR4 recounts the historic moment: “On October 29, 1969 at 10:30 PM, UCLA Professor Leonard Kleinrock and graduate student Charley Klein tried to send a message with the word “log” to SRI’s Augmentation Research Center. Although programmers at SRI received the letters “lo”, the ARPANET connection crashed before the “g” arrived.”

The more things change . . .
