Stepping back from the DMARC arguments, it occurs to me that there is a predictable cycle with every new e-mail security technology.
1. Invention and enthusiasmSomeone invents a new way to make e-mail more secure, call it SPF or DKIM or DMARC or (this month's mini-fiasco) PGP in DANE. Each scheme has a model of the way that mail works. For some subset of e-mail, the model works great, for other mail it works less great.

Every year M3AAWG gives an award for lifetime work in fighting abuse and making the Internet a better place. Yesterday at its Dublin meeting they awarded it to Rodney Joffe, who has been quietly working for over 20 years. I can't imagine anyone who deserves it more.
Since he wasn't able to attend in person, they made a video of an informal interview in which he recounts a lot of what he's done, with a few comments from his friends.
Also see Laura Atkins' story about how Rodney got her into the anti-abuse world.
