Subject Line Comparison | MailChimp“New email marketers often ask us, “How should I write my subject lines so that more recipients will open my emails?” In order to answer that question, we analyzed more than 40 million emails sent from customers through MailChimp, and singled out the ones with the highest and lowest open rates.”

The Science Behind Those Obama Campaign E-Mails – Businessweek“One fascination in a presidential race mostly bereft of intrigue was the strange, incessant, and weirdly overfamiliar e-mails that emanated from the Obama campaign.”

How do I know if I’m writing a good subject line? | MailChimp.com“The nerds in MailChimp Labs recently unveiled a new experiment called the Subject Line Researcher. It’s kind of like Google’s Keyword Tool, but for email marketing. And it’s free for all MailChimp users.”

Scott Dinsmore: Live Your Legend and Connect With Anyone – YouTube — I couldn’t find anything on Scott sending the “insert subject line here” email, but I did find this.
