Here is an artifact of the old internet: "Somewhere in the picture below we have cleverly hidden a can of spam. If you think you've found the spam, click on it to find out if you're right. You probably don't think there is any spam in the picture, but look closely. Most people only find the spam after staring intently at the picture for several hours.
"Good luck and find that spam!
Find the Spam is a relic. It was made as a funny application for imagemap links, then a fairly new thing. When I first saw this website, I was using Mosaic
to view it from a Windows 3.1 machine in a college computer lab.
How old is Find the Spam? This use of spam here is not a reference to junk email, because that use of the term was still fairly new back then.
