Spam Kings in Japanese

SK-japan.jpgO'Reilly Media has just published a Japanese edition of Spam Kings.

Check out the cover ... I got a chuckle from the "Spy versus Spy" motif.

Japan is not home to any major spam kings, but the country does have several Internet service providers with spammy reputations. And Internet users in Japan certainly receive a heavy bolus of junk email -- much of it in English.

It's gotten so bad that the Japanese government finally is starting to crack down on domestic spam operations.

If you read Japanese, or are curious what Spam Kings looks like in Japanese, the preface is available for download.
