We won't turn anyone away, but the RSVP's really help the Four Seas

meet in the upstairs banquette room.

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

***Abstract***

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.
