we are fortunate to be introduced to several approaches for combining matter with a quantum spacetime---enough so there is actually a profusion of "quantum spacetime/matter" alternatives so we had better list the ones that have been introduced to us recently 1. Garrett Lisi 2. Torsten & Helge 3. Sundance Bilson-Thompson preon model put on spin networks As time permits, I will add brief descriptions and gather some links to threads discussing these. If anyone else want to add things, or take over the job, please do! You are very welcome to take charge. I only think we need to list these new approaches so we do not accidentally forget any.
