QED audience

QED should be a public resource that should make mathematics
interesting and usable to a wider audience than it currently is. I
believe it is a non-starter both politically and financially to
restrict our intended audience to professional mathematicians.

If we are to make QED a public resource, let's keep in mind recent
advances in distributed database technology (such as WWW and mosaic).
It would be really interesting to find WWW resources besides the
weather and the latest Dr. Fun Cartoon. (You can also find tangos, by
the way and some really beautiful, albeit risque' pictures of tango

There is some more material about my proposed implementation of a
"root logic" equivalent in strength to PRA (a theory of binary trees)
on my WWW page. Follow the link to QED, then to the meta-logic
proposal, then to "something more concrete". This is still very much
draft material; it is lacking both proofs of equivalence with PRA and
a report on experience with actual implementation under my prover.
