    $\begingroup$ SEDE is a public ms-sql mirror of the site (and also all other SE sites). With it, you can create various stats and reports for discussion. New users pe rmonth, upvotes/month, questions/month. $\endgroup$ – peterh May 7 '19 at 22:32

  • $\begingroup$ @KyleKanos Op asked for texts, not for tables. Although I suspected, he will like also graphs. $\endgroup$ – peterh May 8 '19 at 1:21

    $\begingroup$ @peterh there is nothing that says "texts" in the post. OP is looking for a source of information, SEDE queries can certainly provide that. $\endgroup$ – Kyle Kanos May 8 '19 at 1:55
  • $\begingroup$ @KyleKanos OP wants to "read". Not to see graphs. At least, on the original text. $\endgroup$ – peterh May 8 '19 at 9:36

    $\begingroup$ If you want an all-in-one-place history of physics in Stack Exchange, I suspect the closest you'll get is my answer to How did mathematics end up with two Stack Exchange sites, while Physics only got one?. More generally, it's pretty unclear to me exactly what type of answer you're looking for. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty May 8 '19 at 11:55
