That’s it! Our 9.5yo has done it… she has forwarded along her first chain email. To both Wifey and me.
I read the message and smiled at her innocence. The message reads:
this is a money angel Pass it to 6 of your good friends, or family and be rich in 4 Days.
I wonder whether she actually thinks she’ll get rich in 4 days. I have tried to train her to not click on popups, but with the odd VBScript virus appearing on our computer once in a while, I don’t think she’s learnt yet.
Isn’t it weird that I see this as a milestone. How technology changes and affects our lives. When I was a kid, this wouldn’t even be a possibility! No.. hang a sec.. there were those BBS’s that you could dial into…
I better have a talk to our daughter about chainmails and get rich schemes soon.
Or maybe I should wait 4 days just in case 🙂
