Reaction to the DEC Spam of 1978 (courtesy of Gary Thuerk)

You might be amused to read the first spam message sent out by Gary Thuerk back in 1978, which doesn't seem all that long ago.

Brad Templeton's site offers the original message, address links to recipients, and some commentary.

Who would ever think that literature (or something resembling it) would play a part in spreading the dreaded viral disease of spam?

Have fun, kiddies.
