Title: Eric Allman @ BALUG (Tuesday!!)

Hi Folks:

BALUG is very proud to host Eric Allman as our speaker this Tuesday, April 15th.  Eric Allman is the original author of sendmail and he is giving an excellent talk titled "Email Evolvoing." (see abstract below) If you'd like to come please drop us an RSVP:


***Why RSVP?***

We won't turn anyone away, but the RSVP's really help the Four Seas Restaurant know how much food to prepare and ensure that BALUG gets to meet in the upstairs banquette room.

***When & Where***

The Four Seas Restaruant
731 Grant Ave.
San Francisco, CA 94108

Parking: $5 garage @ 733 Kearney (1 block away)


The meeting is free, but dinner is $13 for the family style Chinese dinner.


Internet email is in a process of rapid evolution.  Besides the obvious things, such as spam and malware, many other technology trends are having an impact.  These include mobile devices, new messaging technologies, social networking, changing legal requirements, the rise of Software as a Service and Service Oriented Architectures, and an unstable underpinning of the network itself.
Not surprisingly, many of these same forces do or will affect other parts of the network.

This talk will describe these evolutionary pressures, point out some of the unexpected consequences of our attempts to adapt to these pressures, and make some dire predictions for the future.  Generous time will be allotted to Q&A.
