Remember when you used to receive an incoming fax on a roll of glossy fax paper…that eventually faded so you couldn’t read the original fax transmission? Or using a typewriter (first manual, then electric) to generate correspondence instead of creating a Word document on a computer?? How about handwriting phone messages and delivering them to the desk of the intended recipient before the inception of voice mail?
