I like the comment in the video 'I feel Mitt Romney would really not understand this'.

Now that's what I call a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter in the firmament!

This is really going to piss off the Tau proponents.

Hey! Plagiarists! Some of those digits match the digits in a song I released last year!

I went out in my backyard for a few minutes when it was going on and didn't see it. Then again, I should have went out to the local park for a better view.

I'm glad he named this project Pi In The Sky. I know it's not very subtle, but really...if it was called anything else, I think we'd all be ranting about missed opportunities.

I saw this in the sky over my office (well, the office I was visiting from out of town for some meetings). There were a couple of guys standing around trying to figure out what the numbers in the sky meant. I rolled my eyes and thought, "Glad I don't live in the Bay Area where people are apparently all over novelty skywriting."

I guess it's nice to know I witnessed an Event. I kind of figured it was some hot new publicity trend.

Missed opportunity: "Predict" the next number out loud appearing God-like to the younger crowd watching.
