Who Chose the CMB Temperature?

Currently the best temperature is determined to be 2.7255 +/- 0.0006 Kelvin (Fixsen et al. 2009, ApJ, 707, 916).
[Here α = e2/4π0 cħ and αG = G me2/ cħ]

Let me know if you have other stupid ideas!

Interested surfers with nothing better to do might like to think of reasons why the CMB is at -270.425° Celsius or -454.765° Fahrenheit.
