I have been working on a project for Green Mustard Entertainment for the past couple of months that has involved tracking down pop culture conventions in the United States. You know: anime cons, comic cons, etc.
For comparison’s sake, please remember that there are only fifty states in the U.S.A. at this time.
So what have I found?
Well, to date – the database I’ve built currently holds 469 confirmed events… 469. I’m not done, though. There’s still another 190 left in a data file that I am supposed to review in the next couple of weeks. That puts the total estimate at 650 pop culture conventions.
Want more mathematical goodness? 11% of those are in the state of Florida.
One more nugget of statistical interestingness? There are no pop culture conventions in Wyoming.
The mind boggles.
