The Mathematician’s Dice are now for sale to the general public!
The Kickstarter project to get these dice to market was an amazing experience. I plan to write the whole thing up and post it here soon.

Garret Lisi, A PHD physicist with no university affiliation, who allegedly spends most of his time surfing in Hawaii or snowboarding in Tahoe, has submitted a 31-page paper for preprint titled “An Incrediby Simple Theory of Everything.” (The poor guy’s webpage is down, but Google’s cache indicates that he’s a burner too.) The paper departs from string theory, the TOE du jour in theoretical physics, and it’s got physicists talking. The inimitable Lee Smolin calls it “one of the most compelling unification models I’ve seen in many, many years,” and the press is branding Lisi a new Einstein.
Sounds like an interesting guy, and I hope for his sake he’s right, because how on earth could he ever live it down if he’s not?
