When I started working for BitTorrent, I brought with me an event known as “Pie Friday”. In its simplest incarnation, Pie Friday is when someone brings pie in to the office on, yes, Fridays. It started because I love making pie, and other people love eating pie, and has grown to be embraced by people throughout our company. Whether you bring a pie or simply show up ready to eat, Pie Friday is open to anyone and everyone at BitTorrent.
After a particularly successful Pie Friday, a number of us began discussing how we could properly celebrate Pi Day. Although Pi Day technically has nothing to really do with pie, it is a convenient homonym, and this year, Pi Day happened to coincide with Pie Friday. Thus, BitTorrent’s Pi(e) (Fri)Day celebration was born.
