HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY OF EMAIL!
The common or garden email celebrates its thirtieth birthday.
In the autumn of 1971, a US engineer called Ray Tomlinson wrote a 200-line program that later became known as email.
The program allowed a user to send a message to any computer hooked up to the Arpanet, the forefather of today's internet, which was developed by the US Department of Defense.
