comment Why did email use develop in tandem with the internet, rather than other technologies?
e-mail, in a form that's very similar to what we know today, has been around since the early 60's: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email#Origin. It didn't really "develop in tandem with the internet", the internet just made it accessible to a whole lot more people.

Hm, I find the close votes here a bit puzzling, I don't see how the question is about "trivia or basic historical facts". @GWLlosa if this gets closed, you should post a question about re-opening it on our Meta site.

comment Europe as a political unit
I think you'll need to give us a bit more details on your definition of Europe. Would - for example - the EU fit your definition? Even though it includes areas that aren't geographically in Europe (e.g. Cyprus)?
