J.D. Falk Award

Laura Atkins

This morning M3AAWG announced the creation of the J.D. Falk award to recognize and honor people like J.D. who work to make the Internet safer for all users.

"Nominees can be individuals or teams in an academic or company environment who have developed a service, created a specification or security mechanism, generated notable research, or produced other work reducing online abuse and improving the Internet. The award comes with an honorarium provided by Return Path and M3AAWG will sponsor the winning candidate's attendance at the upcoming 26th M3AAWG General Meeting in Baltimore, Md., Oct. 23-25, where the award will be presented.

J.D. was a legend in the abuse prevention world when I first started learning about spam and abuse prevention back in the late 90's. He was one of the founding members of CAUCE and was very active in many arenas at that time. J.D. and I both worked at MAPS. He moved on to work at a number of large ISPs, including Hotmail and Yahoo. J.D. authored a number of documents for the IETF, including those relating to FBLs now in use at most of the major US ISPs.

If you know any person or team who you think deserves to be recognized for all their hard work in making the Internet a better place, you can submit nominations at the M3AAWG J.D. Falk award page.
