PI VS. TAU: CARTER/MCKAY STYLE (recycled from my Tumblr comments)

MCKAY: Oh, right, Sam. But you’re always reminding me that writing 2π in my calculations is pedantic and that everyone assumes the shorthand π implies 2π. But this way, writing τ is one less stroke and solves the shorthand, so what’s your problem?

McKay defends tau

SAM: That’s NOT the point, Rodney. It’s silly to make a big issue of a factor of 2. There’s no problem with having 2π radians in a circle. But the main reason is that tau is already in use; it’s the Golden ratio of the ancient Greeks, about 1.618. — an irrational number: (1 + sq root of 5) over 2.
