Today is Pi Day and below is an article that was posted previously on these pages. However, “pi” was also the nickname of Gimpi, a member of the Lockergnome community that many of us knew and miss. His passing was sudden and his friends miss him. Here’s to a good friend of this community – of course, he would have celebrated Pi Day…
Happy Pi Day – it is March 14 or 3/14. As you know, Pi is 3.14 and so on. Therefore, this is an important day for ‘pi people’:
“…For 20 years, geeks have gathered at the science museum to troop in circular processions, solve pesky puzzles, string beads and consume mass quantities of pie – all building to a peak on 3/14 at 1:59 p.m., when the time lines up to form the first six digits of the mysterious and marvelous number.”
And, March 14th also happens to be Albert Einstein’s birthday. He was born on March 14, 1879. Now, how cool is that!? – Impress a geek today; wish him / her a ‘Happy Pi Day’!
