The first email I ever sent was to my Grandpa Bob. I remember asking him for advice regarding my email address, and my first questions about the internet...regarding safety. He suggested an email address, and I traded emails with him via AOL that night.
I soon found out that my grandfather was way cooler than first thought. He was all over this internet thing - back in the mid-1990's. How many grandparents out there know how to IM, trade emails, and bring his story to the whole wide world....
