Over twee weken is spam verleden tijd.

Dankzij Bill Gates zijn we met ingang van volgend jaar definief van spam verlost: Microsoft hangt vanaf die datum een prijskaartje aan elke verzonden commerciële e-mail.

Dat is althans wat Bill ons op 24 januari 2004 beloofde:

“Two years from now, spam will be solved,” he told a select group of World Economic Forum participants at this Alpine ski resort. “And a lot of progress this year,” he added at the event late Friday, hosted by U.S. talk show host Charlie Ros.

“But the most promising”, Gates said, “was a method that would hit the sender of an e-mail in the pocketbook.”

People would set a level of monetary risk – low or high, depending on their choice – for receiving e-mail from strangers. If the e-mail turns out to be from a long-lost relative, for example, the recipient would charge nothing. But if it is unwanted spam, the sender would have to fork over the cash.

    He conceded, however, that his prognostications have not always been on the mark. 😉
