the topic of this thread is MEDIA COVERAGE, JOB OPENINGS and other items of gossip around Loll at Utrecht and the new model spacetime continuum coming out of the Triangulations approach. I think what Loll and CDT co-workers are doing is currently the most significant development in theoretical physics. So I want to assemble news about it off the web. Like Loll is getting research grants to start a "Triangulations" GROUP at Utrecht and has posted job openings (for pre-doc and post-doc positions). How much, how many? What media coverage? Real life details. And what is this European-wide network for random geometry research called E.N.RA.GE? this thread is to help keep up to date on the CDT-style triangulations quantum gravity story.
