This article claims that Jakob invented spam, but I think that’s a bit silly. I mean, the concept of “unsolicited internet advertisements” has been around a lot longer than that. Wasn’t the first Usenet spam for a lawyer specializing in immigrant Green Card cases? I read that somewhere. Anyway, bitch about a stupid mistake Jakob made once if you must, but don’t accuse him inventing spam. He’s not that evil. (Link courtesy of Zannah.)
