    not sure if this is the right place to put this. But I am interviewing a Fields Medal recipient. What should I ask him?

    Cool! Is it possible to post the transcript here?

    What does he think about this Mochizuki business?

    [referring to Mochizuki's claimed proof of the abc conjecture, which nobody in the world can understand]

    At least that's what I'd ask.

    Why are you interviewing him? Is this on behalf of a university math club? Other?

    Ask him why he decided to pursue math and where he wants to go next with his work.

    I'm with Greg on this. I'd like to see a transcript here.

    Ask him if he wades in the tide.

    Its a long story. I don't think I'll be able to post the transcript here. Perhaps, if I do publish it you can copy the link...Anymore ideas guys???
