Last week (or the week before was the 10th anniversary of hotmail). Consequently I thought now would be a good time to look back at my history with email. I remember when I first heard about email. It was spring 99. Although at that point i was finishing high school and knew that i would be studying computers in college I still thought the concept of emails was stupid. In fact in my grad picture of my year book where it asks for my email, I wrote "only nerds have one". LOL At that point I just didn't see the need for them. I remember someone telling me that i should get one show they could send me stuff. I said if you have something to tell me just call me. Well, i ended up getting a personal email a few months after highschool. And when i got to college they assigned me one also. Soon I had like 5 or 6 emails all set up for different purposes. However i am glad to say that i am one of the few people who don't abuse emails. I don't signup for tons of accounts. I can honestly say that i have only had 2 hotmail accounts in my life. I used the account duanem2 for years but i signed up for a few newsletters and my account got flooded with spam. So i opened the account that i still use to this day duanemartin24 @hotmail.com. I was also lucky enough to sign up for gmail early so i was able to get duanemartin @gmail.com. Which is currently my primary email address.
I am not really going anywhere with all this. I just thought it would be fun to talk about emails for a little bit.
Next week ... something else
