I’ve written several blog entries about how much email I send. For instance, late in 2003 I publicly admitted that I had sent 4600+ emails that year. I’ve also written about particular days in which I’ve sent strangely high amounts of email. All these figures count every kind of email I send (personal, professional, etc), but they only count ones that I’ve typed myself. No automation.
Let me break it down like this, in super-geeky-way-too-much-detail-push-up-your-glasses-and-snort fashion:
In 2003 I sent 4600+ emails.
In 2004 I sent 3501 emails. Perhaps I was in a slump.
In 2005 I sent 4571 emails. I was pickin’ it back up.
I’m proud to announce that this is a record-breaking year. So far this year (so far mind you) I have sent 5060 emails. 5060!!! It’s June 20th, and I’ve sent more since January 1st, 2006 than I sent in the entire year of 2005. What is that… almost 30 emails per day on average? Including weekends. Yeah.
I guess I’m hitting my stride.
If I keep up this trend, by 2010 I’ll be doing about 550 a day. Maybe by the time I’m on my deathbed, over half the Internet’s email traffic will be me. I’ll be there, wheezing and typing, thinking, “Just one more…”
