Entropic Gravity Predestrians


I read about it in the NYTimes of July 12. By the way, look to Citizen Cyberscience Summit program in the BOINC home page. Looks like dr.Allen is going to give a talk on Einstein@home, together with other BOINC gurus.

Gravity theories abound. I

Gravity theories abound. I have read on New Scientist of a theory by Petr Horava at Berkeley U. who thinks we should abandon Lorentz Symmetry. I don't think this is possible but since all these new theories cannot be tested by any experiment, I think we should go back to Newton who said "Hypotheses non fingo".
