## Main Question or Discussion Point

Kea and I were talking about the latest paper by Reuter and Lauscher, which showed fractal-like spacetime structure at very small scale.

http://www.arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0508202

O. Lauscher, M. Reuter

It came out a few days ago and already has one citation. How many do you guess it will have by 31 December?

Kea said:Hi Marcus

I can't imagine how people estimate these things. I really have no idea: but for fun, I'll guess 10, because I like their work.

marcus said:I like their work too a whole bunch. I will start a forecast poll thread. I think the choices will be

1 (which they have now, so zero more this year.)

2

3

4 (which I guess, that means three additional citations before yearend)

5

6

over 6 (that would include your guess of ten citations)
