5. Simple as Pi

Episode two of Five Numbers, the BBC radio series presented by Simon Singh.

Most people's first slice of Pi is at school where it is generally made palatable as either 3.14 or the fraction 3 1/7. The memory of this number may be fuzzy for those propelled through their Maths GCSE by the power of Casio (where Pi was reduced to a button on the bottom row of the calculator), but the likelihood is they still recall that romanticised notion of a number whose decimal places randomly go on forever. At its simplest, Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. At its most complex, it is an irrational number that cannot be expressed as the ratio of two whole numbers and has an apparently random decimal string of infinite length.

6. Rule 53 ep 6 C.C. Chapman, Amanda Helfand

This week’s episode of Rule 53 features one of my favorite people, the one and only C.C. Chapman. We paired up C.C. with Amanda Helfand, a student at Bentley University because of her keen interest in marketing and social media. As one of the founders of the Advance Guard (recently acquired by Campire), one of the first new media consultancies, C.C. is an leading social media strategist, community organizer, media maven, and digital dad extraordinaire. He also happens to be a Bentley alum and a veteran podcaster.

In this episode, C.C. and Amanda tackle the challenges of time management, what it means to multi-task in a digital world, tips for working from home, Twitter, and last but not least, Rule 53.

Words of wisdom from C.C.:

``````* “Learn everything you can and share it with others.”
* His Rule 53: “Eliminate ‘I can’t’ from your vocabularly.”
``````

Many thanks to C.C. and Amanda for their time and stay tuned for next week’s episode where we interview another Community leader, Chris Brogan.
