As early as the 18th century, the polymath Albrecht von Haller was already. century a life in the network

An exhibition at the Bern Museum of Communication presents Albrecht von Haller as a forerunner of today’s "Netjunkies". The polymath was active in disciplines as diverse as botany, poetry and anatomy. Haller’s profound knowledge was only possible thanks to a Europe-wide network of 1200 correspondents.

The Enlightenment philosopher and polymath Albrecht von Haller demonstrated long before our time how scientific efficiency and enormous expertise in various branches of science can be achieved thanks to a tightly woven network of contacts. Born in Bern in 1708, Haller first studied medicine in Tubingen and Leiden before being appointed professor of anatomy, botany and surgery at the University of Gottingen after years practicing medicine in his native city. Haller spent a total of 17 years in the German university city., before he returned to Switzerland again. Under the title "Ferngesprache – the 17,000 letters of the polymath Albrecht von Haller" the Museum fur Kommunikation in Bern is devoting itself to the scientist’s extensive correspondence and comparing his non-electronic networking with contemporary forms of communication.

Blacklists are actually only meant to support spam filters. But more and more they are being used against the advice of their operators to block out whole sections of the Internet by email. Now France, England, Germany and Russia have been hit – completely.

Spamcop is an abomination to me personally for a long time. Although the operator itself explicitly discouraged using the blacklist for anything other than tagging mails as possible spam so that they can be pre-filtered, admins regularly disregard this advice. Whoever sends mail from a server that has landed on Spamcop – or another blacklist – will have his mail deleted without comment or sent back with false error messages instead.
