PostHistory is one in a series of projects that explore the notion of history in computer applications and online environments. By developing time-based visualizations
of digital activities, we hope to raise questions such as: what is digital memory? How can we understand, interact with and, more importantly, share our digital history?

The visualizations in PostHistory mainly fall into two main categories:
– email landscape
– personal email social network
Because we are interested in looking at changes over time, the main visual metaphor is the calendar. The social network visualizations are also animated over time.
