Today in History: The First Spam Email Ever Sent

Spam Filtering: How to stop spam emails. Email. Historically, the term electronic mail was used generically for any electronic document transmission.


For example, several writers in the early 1970s used the term to describe fax document transmission.[3][4] As a result, it is difficult to find the first citation for the use of the term with the more specific meaning it has today. An Internet email message[NB 1] consists of three components, the message envelope, the message header, and the message body. The message header contains control information, including, minimally, an originator's email address and one or more recipient addresses.

Usually descriptive information is also added, such as a subject header field and a message submission date/time stamp. Originally a text-only (ASCII) communications medium, Internet email was extended to carry, e.g. text in other character sets, multi-media content attachments, a process standardized in RFC 2045 through 2049.

Search engines are, in a sense, the heartbeat of the internet; “googling” has become a part of everyday speech and is even recognized by Merriam-Webster as a grammatically correct verb.

The Ultimate Guide to the Invisible Web

It’s a common misconception, however, that googling a search term will reveal every site out there that addresses your search. In fact, typical search engines like Google, Yahoo, or Bing actually access only a tiny fraction – estimated at 0.03% – of the internet. The sites that traditional searches yield are part of what’s known as the Surface Web, which is comprised of indexed pages that a search engine’s web crawlers are programmed to retrieve. So where’s the rest?

Invisible Web Gets Deeper. By Danny Sullivan From The Search Engine Report Aug. 2, 2000 I've written before about the "invisible web," information that search engines cannot or refuse to index because it is locked up within databases.

Now a new survey has made an attempt to measure how much information exists outside of the search engines' reach. The company behind the survey is also offering up a solution for those who want tap into this "hidden" material. The study, conducted by search company BrightPlanet, estimates that the inaccessible part of the web is about 500 times larger than what search engines already provide access to. To put that another way, Google currently claims to have indexed or know about 1 billion web pages, making it the largest crawler-based search engine, based on reported numbers.

A couple of days ago David Gelernter – a known Computer Science Visionary who famously survived an attack by the Unabomber – wrote a piece on Wired called ‘The End of the Web, Search, and Computer as We Know It’. In it, he summarized one of his predictions around the web moving from a static document oriented web to a network of streams. Nova Spivack, my Co-founder and CEO at Bottlenose, also wrote about this in more depth in his blog series about The Stream.

I’ve been interested in the work of David Gelernter for quite some time and thought this might be a good time to revisit some of his previous predictions. In 1999 he wrote a piece on Edge called ‘The Second Coming – A Manifesto’. Internet. Hacktivism/Digital Activism/Online Privacy, Security,Anonymity. Confluence - Team Collaboration Software.
