Pi Day at MIT

It’s Pi Day, otherwise known as 3.14. My alma mater, MIT, sends its acceptances today and greets them video. This year, it’s this Marvel Comics tie-up.

Building on this public display of school spirit, and with well thought-out coordination, MIT is also running a “24-Hour Challenge” fundraising campaign. If 1,500 alums give on Pi Day, an anonymous donor will give an additional $150,000. Today, I added my name to the rolls of Pi Day givers. With over 1,100 gifts as of 9:30am, the challenge is pretty much in the bag.

[edit: they ended with 6,051 donors, raising $3.8 million.]
