Timing Is Everything...
What if (against almost everyone's expectations) P actually equals NP???....
With fresh reports of the NSA cracking/hacking of internet encryption in the news, probably a good time for the award-winning, mathematical thriller* "Travelling Salesman" movie (about the P vs. NP problem) to be making its worldwide release... and... lo-and-behold it is!:
reviewed a bit here: http://plus.maths.org/content/travelling-salesman-0
and interview with the director here: http://www.pulse-project.org/node/435
