Happy Birthday Spam on the BBC World Service Email

I was interviewed this afternoon on the BBC World Service newshour program, about the 30th anniversary of the first spam.

To listen in, visit the program's web site. Click the "Listen again" link and, although it was recorded and broadcast on Saturday the 3rd, it is the Sunday 2000 GMT link.

The interview is with Lyse Doucette and starts about at about 13:45 into the hour long program.
