Pointcare Conjecture - Grigory Perelman's Proof

Greetings,

I'm far from a skilled mathematician and I was wondering what greater minds than mine thought of Perelman's proof of the Pointcare conjecture. Also, if you could offer a brief explanation of the conjecture it would be very much appreciated.

Here is a link to a bried article on Perleman and the conjecture:

What reprecussions will proving this conjecture mean to you and me in terms of practical applications?
