Summary:

On Thursday, November 14th, the CECM welcomed NBC to the centre. They came, they saw, and they ate Pi (pumpkin pie).

Simon Plouffe, Jonathan Borwein and Peter Borwein were all interviewed in hopes that NBC's audience could understand WHY PI? WHY so many digits?

We showed off the new Pi pages, impressed them with our audio Pi, and showed them just how mathematicians work, think and play.

The show is to air on MSNBC's Edgewise on Saturday, November 23rd. It can also be viewed on the MSNBC Edgewise Internet pages.
