This sure beats my own attempt to visualize pi. http://www.4000000pi.com/ (sorry, Flash…)

Neat, I like yours as well.

This looks very atlas-like! You can almost see North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and sorta-Australia/Pacific. Very cool!

Please. Someone do it in base 6, and do it in 3D. Let 4 be forward, and 5 backwards…

It’s not really a *random* walk since the first 100 billion digits of pi are already known before the very first step is taken.

How would other numbers (whole, fractions, e) look in base pi?

Tammett is an autistic savant who memorized π to thousands of places.

Someone please do this with using golden ratio!

Nice and original visualizations of pi could be found here:

Since 1972, the General Social Survey has asked people about their happiness. It never changed much — until 2020 happened.

What people are doing when they are happy and not, from age 20 to 70.

We almost always look at data through a screen. It’s quick and good for exploration. So is there value in making data physical? I played around with a 3-D printer to find out.

Articles about stay-at-home dads and parents with even work loads might make it seem like dads are putting in a lot of hours in the household these days. Are they? How do they compare to moms’ work hours?

This sure beats my own attempt to visualize pi.
