As Dave Sifry notes, there's going to be a Web Spam Squashing Summit next week: Thursday, Feb 24th.
Technorati is organizing the event (thanks guys!) and we're hosting it on-site at Yahoo in Sunnyvale. The main goal to get the tool makers in a room together to talk about web spam, share info, and brainstorm.
So far AOL, Google, MSG, Six Apart, Technorati, and Yahoo are on board. I hope we'll also have representation from Feedster, WordPress (hi Matt), and Ask Jeeves and/or Bloglines too.
As Dave says, space is limited, so send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
Sadly, I won't be there the whole day. I'm on a lunchtime panel in San Francisco (more on that later) so I'll be around for the beginning and end, but not the middle. But our best spam fighters will be on hand. :-)
And just to be absolutely clear, this is a technical working session, not a media event. You can expect to see some of the attendees blog about the day, of course.
