Processing IM logs

For a few years now, I've always kept my IM archives. I didn't really have a purpose, I just thought that it might be fun to one day look back and see what kind of dis­cus­sions I had. Well, now I have 150 Mb of logs from Digsby, Trillian and Pidgin and there is no way I'm ever going to read that again. But in light of a few things I learned recently (the Coursera NLP and ML courses) I am going to try to visualize and analyze my archives in a math­e­mat­i­cal way. That's right, I'm reducing you to numbers. :D. At least what we've discussed continue.
