Submission + - Pi Day and an interview with a Pi researcher (examiner.com)

JoshuaInNippon writes: In honor of Pi Day , March 14 (or 3.14 for those who may need a hint), readers may be interested in reading an interview with Professor Daisuke Takahashi, the Japanese researcher who found 2.5 trillion decimals of Pi back in the famous number back in last August, before being apparently edged out in December by a French computer programmer looking to prove his efficient coding abilities. Professor Takahashi's interview gives a brief unique incite into one man who truly marvels at the number that has drives people to ever greater lengths to find more digits for centuries. Among Professor Takahash's thoughts are that he believes Pi may in fact be a message from God. Also, on a random side note, he commented that he doesn't eat pie often.
