Spam Conference

Spam Conference logo

I'm giving a presentation this Friday at the 3rd annual MIT Spam Conference. I originally planned to talk about some of the things I learned about spammers while researching Spam Kings. Maybe I'll still get into that a bit.

But then I decided the conference might be a good place to air out some thoughts I've had about how spam folders may evolve in the future.

So, my talk is entitled, "A plan for spam folders: Why filters will never totally eradicate junk email." (Yes, it's a riff on the influential paper that conference organizer Paul Graham released a couple years ago.)

I'll also be publishing an article on the topic at O'Reilly Network later this week.
