I just ran the following code on the 2009 archive of my inbox.
grep "From: " 2009|cut -f 1 --complement -d " "|sort|uniq -c|sort -nr|less
I received the most email from bots and scripts, among them WordPress.com, Twitter and Facebook. Of the real people here are the top 5 names you may recognise:
- Maya Desai (109)
- Matt Mullenweg (96)
- Sheri Bigelow (76)
- Michael D Adams (37)
- Barry Abrahamson (34)
This was of course inspired by Matt’s post in January. I should do the same for Twitter replies/messages and for blog comments. I somehow doubt there would be much overlap between Twitter DMs and emails.
One thought on “Email in 2009”
Donncha, did I really send you the most e-mail? OMG, I’m so sorry. I think it’s all those voicemail ones. There must be a better way!
