This is What Happens After You Hit 'Send' On a Gmail Email

Google is this week looking to educate people on the process of delivering an email the 'The Story of Send.' The site explains what happens to your email between your click of the 'send' button and the recipient opening the message. It covers everything from data centers to spam filters to ISPs and videos and photos are there to make the learning experience a little bit more visual. You'll even learn about the green energy that powers the data centers. 

Check out The Story of Send here, or watch the video below for a quick introduction:

    Don't watch the presentation if you easily suffer from motion sickness... You might puke on your keyboard.

    The video was more about Google's green efforts than what happens after you hit 'Send'.

    Not only is it more about how green Google is, they also left out the part were they scan and catalog what is in your email so they can sell your information.

  • Yeh right. Data centers are certainly NOT green in any fashion. They chew up more electricity than anything. And GOOD LUCK getting all your juice from wind farms ... This kind of presentation should be illegal.
