I hate to risk additional distraction when we have so much thoughtful discussion---and add an additional thread when there are several good ones going, but I just came across a 15 October post at arxiv which I want to pass along, should anyone be interested.

It is an 11-page article contributed to the "Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics" and called "Noncommutative geometry and the standard model".

From the introduction: "The aim of this contribution is to explain how Connes derives the standard model of electro-magnetic, weak and strong forces from noncommutative geometry..."

http://arxiv.org/hep-th/0310145 [Broken]

The author is at Marseille (Center for Theoretical Physics)---same place as Rovelli and a number of folk recently writing loop gravity articles. His name is Thomas Schuecker, doesnt mean anything to me but may to you. Seems to be a lot of ferment of all kinds at the Marseille CPT.

The writing style impressed me as straightforward and concise
