Magic Numbers

Yesterday saw two personally relevant numerical milestones crossed:

1000 playbacks: My first YouTube video to cross the 1000 playback line — some weird superhero stuff i shot at Wonder-con in San Francisco. Ok, so it’s not exactly qualifying for most watched, but considering the majority of my previous uploads were strange test videos of cats, kinda exciting to see hundreds of people watching my content.

5 million: Second Life passed five million registered users. Yes I know only a portion of these are active and an even smaller percentage are directly paying Linden Lab for the service, but when you launched to a number orders of magnitude smaller than this a few years back, it still feels pretty good.
