Slow year

I just noticed that I sent 5959 outbound email messages in 2005. That’s down about 7% from the year before, and substantially below my all-time high of 7300+ in 2001. This is just personal messages typed into my email client, not broadcast invitations or promotional announcements.

Funny, I don’t think I’m cutting down on my email actitivity. Although I wonder if the proliferation of spam, and the growth of other communications channels (such as Skype messaging) are reducing my email traffic. I did manage to break my one-day record last year, cranking out 120 emails in one flurry of pre-Supernova 2005 activity. I guess that gives me something to shoot for in 2006….
