Ned Batchelder: May 2004: Google's math sense of humor

Ned Batchelder: May 2004: Google's math sense of humor "Stories like this one mention that Google is raising $2.7 billion in its much-discussed IPO. What they don't mention is that they are actually raising a more precise amount: $2,718,281,828. Recognize the number? It's a billion times e, the base of natural logarithms!"

(Thanks, Phil)
