Why some email addresses are better than othersJuly 22, 2013
Every time we work with a new client, one of the issues that often comes up is their email address.
Here in Santa Barbara, the majority our clients use Cox for their internet connection. In the olden days of the 1990’s (remember that’s actually TWO decades ago now!), being given an email address from your ISP (Internet Service Provider) was a real cool thing.
In the early daze of dial-up modems, AOL, CompuServe and many smaller outfits like Silcom here in town, having your email address hosted by them was a natural thing.
There was no Gmail, Mobile Me, and Yahoo and Hotmail were just beginning to show up. Basically, unless you were pretty technically savvy, you just grabbed the email address that your ISP gave you.Boy how times have changed.
Today, the internet is much more mature, significantly faster, and accessed in ways the early pioneers might not even have imagined. Astronauts have internet access and it has become ubiquitous across newly invented mobile devices, the latest of which is Apple’s iPad. Soon, we’ll have it wired into our cars, bicycles, clothing, gardens and just about anywhere you can possibly imagine.
