Useful spam and Knol

The last days I have noticed that most of the spam I receive has some made up news as subject. I imagine it is to make people click on the messages.

The point is that one of those messages was titled “Knol, the Wikipedia killer”, or something along those lines. I didn’t click on the message, and actually I just thought that “Knol” was a made up word… but then I thought “hm, maybe this exists after all”, so I went to the Wikipedia page… and there you go, I just found out about Knol and learned something about Music in Capoeira because of some spam message.

Informative spam. Go figure. Or maybe it means I should read more tech news?
