How Hard It Was To Send An Email In 1984

A new video demonstrates how much the computers have progressed over the past 30 years.

From time to time, we get a video that demonstrates how much we have progressed and how easy the actions that required an extremely high effort in the past have become. A short email, for example, takes a couple of seconds today. But in 1984, apparently this was a much complex process than we could ever imagine. The proof is a video recorded in that very year, which was recently published by the folks at Mashable.

In an era when only a few people knew how to send a message from a computer, the characters that appear in the video argue that the process is extremely simple. However, relative to what we have today, it is of a remarkable complexity. As you can see in the above material, one of the first objectives was connecting the computer to the network. Thus, to establish a connection, the user had a phone with a rotating disk.

After this step, the person at the computer has logged into a program referred to as Micronet 800, which provided various things, such as information and technology news, software that can be downloaded and numerous other services. Finally, it is demonstrated how a message written on a computer can be sent to another device. Of course, we must take into account the fact that in that year, such technology was indeed impressive. Finally, the presenter of the show is showing us how the message he just received on the PC may be reproduced on a sheet, using a printer.
