Where did the term "spam" come from? This was derived from a Monty Python sketch where a couple tried to order something at a restaurant other than spam (the popular meat product). Then a group of Vikings in the background started to sing the praises of spam and soon the only word you can hear in the sketch is "spam." The same thing happens to the Internet, which would be overwhelmed by large-scale unsolicited emails. Let's say you paid for a list of email addresses from a local business organization. The list of addresses seems like it could contain great prospects for your business, and you wanted to send them an email containing a relevant offer they can't refuse. But since these recipients didn't give you explicit permission to contact them, sending an email to this list would be considered spam. In this episode, Joshua Lewis shares some tips on how to stop spam and increase your chance of obtaining leads.

People seem to think that because all their data is in the cloud, they don't need to upgrade their computers and they can just use the cheapest, dirtiest piece of thing that they've ever seen. The truth is you can't. If anything, it needs to be more powerful than before and the reason is with all your stuff in a traditional sense, when there was a server that was hyper-powered super duper and it allowed for any of the things that needed to be done, that is where the processing house was and then what would happen is the data would shoot through to your computer and your computer would just be a display for it really. So it didn't need to be that powerful.
I'm on Fossil Walk in Badlands Park. It's a pretty cool name, and this place is famous for its fossils, particularly mammals, which we've found lots of ancient pigs, rhinos, horses, rabbits, rodents, and plenty of others.
