Rare for me to praise a Labour Minister, but kudos to Associate IT Minister David Cunliffe who is showing an enthusiasm for the Government to help in the fight against spam.
Within my role with InternetNZ I’ve been doing a lot of work in this area lately.
IDG has an interesting interview with anti-spam vendor Brightmail CEO Enrique Salem, whom I met yesterday. Some of technology out there is amazing, but I doubt whether technology alone will solve spam.
I tend to think legislation has a role to play, but on the other hand as my colleague from ACT commented – when has passing a law ever solved anything!
