New York Times Commemorates 30 Years of Email

Today's New York Times is carrying an article commemorating the 30th anniversary of email. Ray Tomlinson '63, a member of the Alumni Hall of Fame is featured in the article, which includes a personal sidebar interview discussing the first email message ever sent between computers on a network.

At one point in the interview, Tomlinson speaks about the time he realized that email had become a major part of American culture: "The story I get the biggest kick out of is when my name and e-mail appeared on 'Jeopardy' a couple of years ago. My mother was a faithful viewer and she said she was happy that they finally had an answer she knew the question to."
