Inventor Of E-Mail Honored By Smithsonian

The inventor of e-mail is being honored by the Smithsonian. The institute now has the documentation, tapes, copyrights and over 50,000 lines of code related to the invention.

On Thursday, his name, his 1978 invention documentation, and the associated copyright, were entered in the Smithsonian permanent collection. The documentation will be archived in the National Museum of American History and put into an online exhibit. The documents will be scanned as soon as this week to be featured on a site under the domain. The date for the site launch has not yet been determined.
