Today is one of my favorite holidays, Pi Day. Yes, today is March (3), 14th and Pi is 3.1415926. This year, unlike last, Google has a logo. Here is the special Google Doodle for Pi Day:

Google Pi Day

Bing, Yahoo, and the other search engines don't seem to have a logo for the day. We took the time to change our complete theme for the day, here is a picture:

Pi Day 2010 at Search Engine Roundtable

I should note, that although Google did not have a logo last year, they did mention it in a blog post and they did tweet it.

DogPile also has a special message on their web site, but they reserved it for the clock change. Here is their spring forward logo:

i am very pleased to see pi getting its well deserved respect. if i am not mistaken pi was discovered by an Indian Mathematician ( Mr. Ramanujam) it is really an interesting story to read about this genius man.

I am sure the new quad core chips will attain the final accurate calculation of the jumble which happens after the decimal point. The inventor must have worried about these fine points of the "constant" which he created. Question: now I have to research the inequality which appears over the sinewave. I especially loved pi's well behaved contribution to understanding angular momentum series.

um - not that i know much about it, but i gathered that this is the only pi day with this many numbers that any of us will experience. that's why it's a bigger deal this year.
