Spam Art


This blog, and our many email inboxes, have been getting inundated with spam lately. Nothing new there. We expect it. Everything from offers for the latest in erectile dysfunction treatments to stuff much more sinister than that. All par for the course.

Now, rather than simply bemoaning the unfortunate state of affairs that makes spamming such a lucrative business, you can take matters into your own hands and get the personal satisfaction that can only come from watching something get utterly pulverized.

The New York Times’ David Pogue, one of my favorite bloggers, points us to Bill Shackelford’s interactive art piece, Spamtrap, that takes the war against spam to a whole new level!
