For many people unsolicited email or "spam" is the scourge of the Internet, driving some to give up email altogether. There are a variety of approaches to addressing the spam challenge. Individuals can use the Internet and existing tools to limit their exposure to some spam. Anti-Spam laws have been passed in many States and this week the U.S. Congress passed the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, the first national legislation aimed directly at spam. While the spam problem is international in scope, a number of local Hawaii entrepreneurs have recognized the opportunities associated with helping organizations and individuals address the issue. High Tech Hawaii will bring together three local technology entrepreneurs to talk about the spam problem and what solutions may be in store for all of us. During the live airing of the program, questions may be called in to 956-5670 from Oahu or 1-800-342-7949 (neighbor islands) or sent by email to hth@hawaii.edu.

High Tech Hawaii is a live monthly call-in show produced by the University of Hawaii to shed light on high technology activities within the state. It airs live on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the academic year from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. High Tech Hawaii can be seen on PEG Access cable channel 55 throughout the state as well as on Craig TV Channel 21.
