Make Money Fast!!!! – If you owned your inbox, spammers would pay to get inside: Reiterating the need for the Penny Black theory — if I don’t know you and you want to send me an email, how much is it worth to you?

“Technologically, no quick fix is in sight. But it’s helpful to think about what sort of fix the technologists should be hunting for. The answer, I think, is this: I should have property rights to my e-mail inbox, and I should be able to charge you for admission.”
