E-mail's Past, Present, and Future

Recently, the Enterprise Systems Journal was kind enough to ask me some questions about the evolution of e-mail.  Since that was something I'd been meaning to blog about, I'll be lazy and  include a pointer here:

             ESJ Interview with Nathaniel Borenstein

It's pretty much the first time I've set down any of my retrospective thoughts about MIME, all these years later, but I don't think it will be the last.  Are there any MIME-related questions that you would like me to try to answer?

  2. I don't know if you remember or not, but you did an interview with ME about MIME somewhere in the neighborhood of 2002. I have it on audio cassette, and I've been meaning to find a way to get it digitized ever since. My favorite quote was your initial answer to the question, "What is Spam?" You responded, "A fundamental property of the universe."

  3. Brent: No. I keep considering learning to be a mime, but it would just be too cute.

    BS: I just added "Why spam is a fundamental property of the universe" to my list of topics I want to blog on. Thanks.
