    You know, Mike, as awful as Cuomo might be it would be even worse to have a Republican governor. The time to get rid of him is before the election, when we can all work for a better candidate to step forward. You are more than welcome to come to New York and help out, but until that day you are kindly invited to shut your festering pie hole.

    The idea that V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai invented email is simply absurd. Unless he invented when he was two years old in 1965, he did no such thing.

    “Probably the first email system of this type was MAILBOX, used at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1965. Another early program to send messages on the same computer was called SNDMSG.”

    From here: http://www.nethistory.info/History%20of%20the%20Internet/email.html

    That guy is a fraud, at least about this. Hell, my grandfather was sending and receiving email at Purdue in the early- to mid-1970s.

    In truth, no one person invented email. It was developed over time from very basic beginnings, building on older things as all tech does, and evolved with said technology.

    Nearly all email conventions, practices and technologies, however, had already been developed by 1978. Ayyadurai had nothing to do with it.
