I wrote before about my job as my department’s “Message Meister”. I’ve continued the job this semester, sending out (hopefully) witty and interesting emails each week that are at least tangentially related to department events. Recently I was curious to look back at all the emails I’d written over the last two years on the job, so with the help of a friend’s software library I produced a set of “tag clouds” which represent the most popular terms in each email.
You can see the tag clouds (and all the related emails) here. Use the slider to scroll back in time, and click on the dates inside the box to read the full e-mails.
Enjoy, but sorry, the tea and cookies advertised in the emails are only available to members of my department.
