UserFriendly on Bill Gates’ obviously wrong claims
two years ago bill gates came up with a proclamation saying that in two years spam will be gone.
we’ve been considering what to write about these claims (now known as wrong, what a shock), for about three weeks now. we ended up deciding the regular press will cover it.
anyway, today on funsec paul ferguson (fergie) saved us the trouble:
“spam is dead in two years!” was one in a series of such predictions, starting with the classic:
“640k ought to be enough for everybody”
– bill gates, 1981.
bill gates is obviously a genius, but as Sunshine keeps insisting on writing in his blog; prophecy was given to fools. bill gates is no fool and should stay away from such prophecy. it’s obviously not his thing.
bill, you might be an anti-spam kook if…
