Happy Lastday To Spam
The first e-mail spam was sent out thirty years ago today.
“It was rather an insult to one’s sensibilities to have an obvious commercial message sent out over a research network,” said computer scientist Peter Neumann of SRI in Menlo Park, who was one of the 393 recipients of that primordial spam.
Yet, like the cockroaches, it persists and grows.
Where’s a good Sandman when you need one.
