Random 2018: Poisson Voronoi

It is the Poisson Voronoi, and I have no idea what that means.

At the beginning of each year, I select a post for each month of the previous year, using a random number generator, which may actually be random, or not, but is adequate for this exercise. I like to see how well it reflected that year just passed, or did not.

Statistically, I do one ABC Wednesday a week, at least one music piece each week, link summaries twice a month, maybe a couple dozen folks turning 70, pieces about my daughter once a month. So the frequency should be related to that, theoretically.

I’m fairly sure I got this meme from Gordon, who lives in Chicago and still remains the only non-local blogger I’ve ever met.

I love it because it’s quasi-mathematical, like doing the first level of these Brilliant quizzes that I get in my email and occasionally get right. “You have a one-day streak going.”

The graphic came from typing into Google the phrase random site:.gov and picking the first image containing the color green. It is the Poisson Voronoi, and I have no idea what that means. It came from meshing.lanl.gov, the Los Alamos National Lab.
