How Many?

A year ago, I wrote about using my Tinderbox notes to keep track of how many movies I'd seen.

I remembered this because I have a Tinderbox agent that automatically looks for a substantial post from roughly a year ago, and reminds me to glance at it occasionally. That's one of the nice things about hypertext.

This year, I've seen 34 movies -- the list will grow to 36 or 37 before the end of the year. That's a few more than usual, which surprises me.

Last year, I pointed out that a rough estimate of random fluctuations in movie watching would be sqrt(average movies/year), so I'd been seeing about 33 +/- 6 movies a year. And so I did.
