Chaotic Solitude

Inside every (wo)man there is always an urge to find a structure in Chaos !

Am back after a long break! Here is a trivia on Google IPO - am kinda lucky to be in the US when this IPO is about to be listed. Here is a trivia about that IPO.
If you take a close look at the form Google filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the exact value of its planned offering is $2,718,281,828 dollars, which some would immediately recognize as the mathematical constant e.

"e", for those not blessed with a PhD and a job at Google, is Euler's number, which is used as the base for natural logarithms. Google is supposed to be showing the e-finger at wall street analysts with this IPO. It is opening its offering mostly to individual investors hoping to share its wealth.
The Engineer in me got excited noting this. The MBA in me was shouting "How crazy". But that's what Google guys exactly wanted to teach the so called Managers of Wall St. The folks are doing to Wall St. what the regulators couldn't.
