Following on my previous spam musings I had to share this fact I stumbled on today:

The first spam e-mail was sent on this date (May 3rd) in 1978. The first spam message was sent out by a marketing representative from Digital Equipment Corporation to every west coast address on the ARPANET, the predecessor to the Internet.

Thank you DEC for your forward thinking and leadership in making teh internets what they are today...

...oh, and an early StarWars day to those observing it in case I'm not around tomorrow or it slips my mind. May the Fourth be with You!
