It's 200K-athryn

So Numberphile reached 200,000 subscribers today!

I tried to capture the moment for posterity, but my screen refreshing was not quick enough.

It has also been challenging to establish the identity of our 200,000th subscriber.

Anyway, it appears number 200,000 may have been this person!


Kathryn lives in Broomall, Pennsylvania (just outside Philadelphia).

She said: "I happened to come across your channel a few days ago. I'm horrible at math, but for some reason your channel just puts me in a better mood."

When not watching Numberphile, she is into musical theatre.


Number 200k may also have been Travis from Italy. 

He's 14 years old and said: "You're lucky because I'm good with English despite my young age. Even though I'm not perfect yet."

NOTE
Of course Numberphile has had many more than 200,000 people subscribe in total - nearly 218,000 in fact - but sadly we have lost some of them as time goes by. But Kathryn and Travis helped take us past 200,000 current subscribers.

  1. It's amazing that of all of the channels you've made, the mathematics one was the first to maintain 200,000+ subscriptions. The mathematics nerd in me enjoys this mightily. The chemist in me is surprised Periodic Videos didn't already have that many subscribers.

    That says a lot. I can't recall a SINGLE piece of educational programming devoted to mathematics (beyond tutoring videos) that has ever received attention like this. AMAZING!

    Obligatory number suggestion: OVER 9000!

  2. Each and every professional tennis games season unofficially begins using the Australian Open up. There tend to be always several smaller competitions in earlier January to start a period, but only if the gamers take their own places in the first Great Slam from the year will the motion really warm up. www.scorespro.com
