James Gleick on Spam

Another one of my favorite authors, James Gleick (whose works include Chaos: Making a New Science, Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman, Faster: The Acceleration of Just About Everything, What Just Happened: A Chronicle from the Electronic Frontier, and his latest – a biography of Isaac Newton
) doesn’t update his site frequently, but when he does it’s usually worth reading (I especially like his 2000 article Patently Absurd in which he discusses the breakdown of the United States patent system). His most recent article, A Plague on E-Mail takes a look at spam.
