Happy birthday spam

Posted by ESC on May 08, 2003

SPAM - "In case you didn't notice, this month marks the silver anniversary of that fateful moment in 1978 when a salesman at Digital Equipment Corporation typed out the first hundred unsolicited sales pitches one address at a time. Today, spam has become cheap, portable and as indigestible as its namesake." From an Ellen Goodman column, Boston Globe, printed in The Courier Journal, Louisville, Ky., May 8, 2003.
