Proof By Blog

I probably should have foreseen this:

Blogging, as you might have heard, is changing the face of the media. It may also be changing the face of mathematical research. For the first time ever, a substantial mathematical problem has been solved via an accumulation of blog comments, all building on each other. Could this be the future of mathematical research?

When you can collaborate with most of the world, interesting things can happen.
