Waiting for that reply from Bae now:

I’m one of those people that starts to freak out if I don’t get a reply within about a minute, which is why I’m so glad that today’s technology allows us to connect with people in milliseconds.

Back in the early 1800’s it took few weeks for a message to be delivered to the other side of the country or the other side of the globe. Messages used to be delivered in person by memory or sent written down on paper and delivered by a horse and cart. Until Samuel Morse came along that is.

Good ol’ Sammy Morse came up with the telegraph and long distance information transmission in 1938, which completely revolutionised the way we connect with people, and sparked the start of the internet and the way we communicate today.

Thanks Sam!
