Bots and Spam

Very interesting historical and technical view of Spam.   First the history and then the look at how the technical model of a markov chain is involved. Great example to think about how state models work.  And how these models start to look like the basic intelligence of Bots.

The claim is made that the first commercial Spam was sent in 1994.  That made me think, I am sure I saw Spam on groups well before then.  But then it may hang on what 'commercial' means, and the volume involved. Well worth a read from the technical perspective, has given me a few ideas already.
