An excellent little grant...

(early-August 2008) - The Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi) has announced that it has awarded theoretical physicist A. Garrett Lisi (of 'An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything' fame) a grant of $77,222 to work on his theory, which involves using a recently mapped 248-dimension mathematical structure called E8 to unify all the fundamental particles and forces, including gravity.

Add a blog entry for Garrett's presentation at the TED conference. It is a very good layman's explanation of his model. The animations he uses are very cool and explain a lot about the existing standard model.
