Email may be on the way out, thanks to spam

According to Postini, better than 85% of all email traffic is now spam.

One of two things is going to happen here. Either internet users are going to adopt a new form of communication (and it isn’t IM, as spam there is rising rapidly as well), or someone is going to solve the spam problem and become an instant multi-billionaire.

I am going to say the former is more likely. And maybe we should start looking at a substitute for DNS while we’re at it.

***UPDATE***

Ah, just in time – OpenDNS to the rescue.
