This is not about Pi nor is it really about pie. This is about another reason I love Birmingham. I
A recent conversation on Twitter led to celebrating the fourth anniversary of The Terminal and Pi Day with the first PieCamp Birmingham or, in the new language I am learning, #piecampbhm. Ted's Restaurant on Southside is providing the space and people are encouraged to bring pie (and milk) if possible to meet and share ideas.
This is what caught my eye, though, and is so typical of this amazing group of people:
Instead, if you can’t bring a pie with you on Monday evening (though I’d love for you to), I’d ask that you consider making a donation to the Birmingham Education Foundation (BEF). BEF grew out of Yes We Can, Birmingham is taking on what I believe to the major issue facing our metro area at this time – education. If you can’t give, I’d at least like to make sure that folks are aware of its existence and efforts.I see a good future for the city I love and call home, Birmingham.
