  1. Hey,
    I’ve been developing CSEs, such as Unsolved problems, history and definitions. The idea is similar to Polymath: “massively collaborative mathematics”. The difference is search engines, the tools. Math Harbour gathers information in Google’s CSEs, rather than wikis. If you have a good url, feel free to contribute it. I hope MH can help you.
