Peer review, the faster version, part II

I mentioned here that there was an unofficial peer-review process going concerning the mathematical claim by Dr. Vinay Deolalikar that P does not equal NP. In this video, mathematicians Ken Clarkson, Ron Fagin and Ryan Williams explain why they think Deolalikar's is wrong.

Other than that, Ken Clarkson also shows the timeline of the peer-review process that happened in the web and how fast it was, compared with the time it took to find flaws in proofs in the past.
