Venture Canning the Spam

Venture Canning the Spam

Spam is spiced ham in a can, the luncheon meat famously spoofed by Monty Python. It’s also the steady diet of unsolicited email messages that most internet users are forced to consume daily. Billions of unwanted messages are choking the internet, clogging the electronic arteries that corporations depend on. Whether it’s about weight loss, cheap pharmaceuticals or stock tips, spam is not tasty or funny, and at least one company is fighting back. A great discussion starter for media literacy.
