We think this is stunning. Just 42 days into this year and the spammers, scammers and content farms have already cranked out 1 billion pieces of internet pollution. 1 billion pieces of incremental trash to add to the pile we’ve been collecting for the past decade.
In pure Blekko fashion, we commemorate this somber event in the only way we know how: with oddity.
Rich constructed the first BurningSpam man comprised of the printed out version of the 1 billionth piece of spam produced this year. And then burned him. Of course we caught the whole thing of video.
So watch and enjoy this small victory as at least one piece of spam literally goes up in flames. Only a billion more to go....
