Spam Is 30 Years Old.

"New Scientist (http://tinyurl.com/4j8t8c) commemorates spam's 30th 
anniversary, a week from today. The first spam message — archived here 
http://www.templetons.com/brad/spamreact.html#msg was sent to 393 users 
of ARPANET on May 2 1978 by someone from computing pioneers DEC 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Equipment_Corporation). They had 
to type in all the addresses by hand first."
