    While it does look more promising than the usual crackpot attempts at the millennium problems there are some issues. See http://rjlipton.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/issues-in-the-proof-that-p%E2%89%A0np/" [Broken] (there's some further discussion in the comments). It is not currently known whether the proof strategy may produce results when the issues are addressed, but personally I remain skeptical.
