Email in 2009

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, Twitter and Facebook. Of the real people here are the top 5 names you may recognise:

  1. Maya Desai (109)
  2. Matt Mullenweg (96)
  3. Sheri Bigelow (76)
  4. Michael D Adams (37)
  5. 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.

  1. 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!
