I always
thought to write this post when the visits of my blog in Spanish arise to
100,000. Today I opened it and had 101,365 visits in the Spanish versión and 18,396
in the English version, a total of more than 10

^{5}and 10^{4}visits, each one. However the powers of 10 of this post don’t refer to the mathematical numbers but the people who have passed till here.
When I was in preschool,
my group had about 15 children, only 10

^{1 }or more exactly 1.5x10^{1}kids in the school. Mi preschool and my primary school had about 200 and 900 students, respectively (2x10^{2}y 9x10^{2}in powers of 10). In high school and the university, the powers of 10 were increased a lot. There was a total of 2x10^{3}and 1x10^{5}in each institution. Of course that my high school was small and many of us have known each other. On the other hand, my university campus was very big and the total of students was very high. In my faculty, the Sciences Faculty, the number of students was less than 5x10^{3}and that thanks to the biologists and actuaries that contributed mainly to the number nor the physicists and mathematicians that were too few. Till the moment that I graduated from the university, I have seen about 8,100 (8.1x10^{2}) students plus the people around me as my family, friends, neighbors, etc. I could think in a total of about 20,000 people in my life (2x10^{4}).
Internet began
around the 1990’s and grew quickly at the beginning of the XXI century. From
the existence of the World Wide Web, the interaction with people became
digital, very different to other interactions in the human history. By 2007 I
liked a lot to visit YouTube. In those visits I found some special people: a
teacher from the Southeast part of Mexico with videos about poetry, a video illustrated
with images for a song and a personal thought in it (with very few visits), a
guy who uploaded a video of a summary of classical master pieces. In those
visits I thanked those people to share their material. I don’t know how many videos
and users I have seen in my life but YouTube has about 10

^{9}videos and a similar power of 10 of the channel’s number. It is said that about 3x10^{2}hours of video are uploaded each minute.
By 2010, my
husband suggested me to open my blog and write about everything that I wanted
to write. Definitively I loved it because I love writing. So the faces of a
polyhedron are here for every person that wants to read them. In that time, I
started to read other blogs as well and beautiful digital surprises aroused: a
space of poetic reflections and a compilation of math and cooking as examples
of them. This digital world seems to have no end. A total of 10

^{7}blogs are registered for each year. Some of them last few months, some others last for many years. Fortunately, I am very close to the first power of 10 with 6 years of existence for the Spanish version and 5 years for the English version of my own blog.
In my blog I
have seen wonderful surprises written in the comments. I know that people like
to write or not but they come and that’s the important thing.

I enjoyed writing
about The little prince and the infinite and Teachers and apples. I loved to
remember The man on the street and sharing my feelings in Witches and Resting a little bit. I adored to write Mad about polyhedra and Famous people thatstudied sciences series as well as Astronomical games and Counting numbers. I
want to continue with Mad about time series too when time allows me to do the
corresponding research as well as with other series that are now available only
in Spanish.

Till today
there are 5.4x10

^{1}entries in the Spanish versión and y 3.8x10^{1}in the English version.
I know that
the polyhedron has enough energy to continue so you can read these stories.

Among all the possible
and incredible powers of 10 of information in internet… thanks to you for
having reached to this place!

¡ Felices 1.01365x10

^{5}!
and happy 1.8396 x10

^{4}!
and the visits that continue coming
to here.

Happy 18,437 to the time that this entry was published.
