1000 emails

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 20 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Graphing is cool. Especially when you extrapolate data from it. Graphs are also cool when you graph useless information with them, such as how many emails I get per a month. Or how many emails I send per a month. Or both! So that’s what I did. I graphed the amount of email I’ve gotten per a month since 1998. And no, I’m not joking you. I’ve saved almost every single email since 1998. Many of you know this, most of you don’t. In case your worried about privacy issues, don’t. My computer is secured behind a firewall…with all data encncrypted. Now for the results!

This is  how many emails I’ve gotten. As you can see the trend line is going UP! Within the next year or so, I should be recieving upwards of 1000 emails per month. This does not include SPAM or newsletters or automated emailings. 99.5% of these emails are from real people. This does not include my school account, which I don’t use at all, except for inter-school emails. Click on the image to see a bigger, more readable version.
