FOM: Websites featuring "Open Problems in Mathematics and Computing".

Several weeks ago I spoke up about what "fom" might be
about. Traditionally, foundational issues have been geared to
"annoying" problems that could not be fixed in the current
theories. For example, Cauchy and Abel did not think that using
nonconvergent series should be used in mathematics --- they were too
dangerous. So, we get Cauchy sequences and you know the rest.

As a service, I'd like to put up a web site that features open
problems in mathematics, computing, and computer science. Please send
me websites, references, or web addressible papers. I will organize it 
and maintain it.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
