“You’ve got mail!” said my parents’ brand new Macintosh Performa as I turned it on for the first time. Six-year-old me had no idea what e-mail was and I ran down to the mailbox to check. Nothing. It wasn’t till a few years later that I’d learn what e-mail was and that it was full of the fake meat SPAM for some reason. I still didn’t use it until middle school, but even then, I was only using it to play Diplomacy every week. Warp time forward twenty years and our inboxes are stuffed with spam (not the fake meat)
