I heard about this blog from TED. I am a international student now in USA to pursue my undergraduated degree. I am excited about this project. And I fully support your project. I hope more student like can discuss. But what a pity it is. We cannot understand ur puzzles base on our math knowledge despite I love math in a certain extent because I am major in computer engineering. And I believe a lot of capable Mathman in China could solve these puzzles just because they don’t understand it in English. I can hope there are some helpful people who are good at programming for html could sort these puzzles question from high level of math to a low level of math. So we can have more people get in to this project.

I too heard about this blog from TED ! Its quite wonderful to see so many people working on a single problem . Math is kind of a drug for me , to be honest . . . but as Hoa Cai I too do not have a formal background in mathematics . I really like the idea behind this project , as more people regardless of their background can come together and really have fun doing mathematics . I certainly have found something fun to do in my spare time !
