Journal History's Coming To's Journal: The PiSBN Project 3

Oh, I'm so sorry. I know I'm in the company of fellow geeks, and I know you'll all understand why I did this...

But yes, there's really no excuse other than "It was there".

I searched Pi for ISBN numbers. I've got the first three within the first four million decimal places. There's a biotech/environmental engineering paper from Finland in first place, a gothic germanic fairy tale in second, and a conspiratorially hidden English surgeon's story taking the bronze. I reckon it's all quite cool.

Full details on my blog and source code to follow soon...

Sorry again....
