Nicholas Carr at Rough Type says there are three things you can be sure of in life: death, taxes, and spam.
It's all about zero costs and unlimited scale. Given enough eyeballs, no scam is too shallow. If you want a lesson in the new economics of abundance, there's no better place to look than at the business of spam.
The more I think about spam, the more I come to fear that Carr is right that it will always be with us.
