Public Issue Index Day (Pi Day), an event organized by Princeton graduate students Lauren Padilla, Dan Swain, and Elena Krieger, is a data-thon to build an online knowledge-base for public issues.

The Princeton community is urged to attend; specifically, those who want their research to reach a broader audience, want to strengthen their understanding of complex issues; are looking to meet others with similar social issue interests; want to log Campus Community Challenge hours; or are interested in contributing to a crowd-sourced web-application. Pizza, pie, and beverages will be served! Registration is requested but not required. More information can be found at http://www.publicissueindex.org/piday/.
