Amazing stats. To join an email list before 1986, users had to wait for someone to painstakingly adjust the code to include them. For Eric Thomas, that was too uncomputerized for a computerized system. So he created Listserv, the first automated email-list-management software. It’s still used to send group emails, though a lot more of them — 30 million emails are sent using Listserv each day, a huge leap from 25 years ago, when electronic mail was just taking off.

As you might have noticed (!? I’m a big fan of Japanese interactive works. I like their visual style, I like the attention to details and I also like the fact that in order to (try to) review them I need to do some research and investigation. The latest website that came under my radar was created back in May by Business Architects for MEXT the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in Japan.
The challenge to understand the project seems to be particularly hard this time… so if a Japanese friend feels like helping it would be great, even if in a way I’m just happy looking at the lovely illustrations and admiring the fresh approach a governmental organ has to online communication.
