(Newser) – As president, Bill Clinton fired off "a grand total of 2 emails," he admitted at a conference in New York yesterday. One was “to our troops in the Adriatic,” he said, and the other “to John Glenn when he was 77 years old in outer space. I figured it was OK if Congress subpoenaed those," Fast Company reports. Of course, the Internet boasted a whopping 50 sites when he took office in 1993, Clinton reminded attendees.

On the other hand, Gawker notes, the guy knew how to look at computers, as the photos in our gallery show. (In other Internet-related news, Glenn Beck explains why we shouldn't use Google.)
