Join us for a quick trip back in time. Let’s go back three decades, just before the rise of email. Remember what long-distance correspondence was like then?
If you wanted to send someone a quick message—a thank you note, a personal letter or an office memo—you had to type that bad boy out, hunt down an envelope, find a stamp, seal the thing, and take a trip to the nearest post office. And then you got to wait. Email changed all of that, making it possible to write back and forth with someone in seconds instead of weeks.
