New Years Fireworks

I recombined a lot of my Math Forum themes into some year end polemics, hoping to spark some interest in our open source agenda for the new millenium. Having the ball in Times Square be a 3-frequency geodesic certainly helps (10ff+2; V+F=E+2; N:2N:3N and like that).

But newspaper editors don't seem to have much time for a high tech math-science spin (fullerenes, viral shells, octet truss...), especially one that could snowball. Can't have that. Better to recycle the usual stories we always get around this time of year (booze etc.).
