Fundamental Examples
Of course, for this question and many others there is no meaning to "correct answer". In fact I liked all the answers to the question and I hope more answers will come along. Jose was the most valuable partner to this endeavor and he contributed several great answers both before and after the boundy was announced. |

How Does Random Noise Typically Look?
Let me point out that the question is a fairly technical and "dry" question. In the formulation proposed by Greg is it is entirely concrete. (I am simply curious about the answer. And, yes, maybe I miss something obious.) |

What is known about polyhedra nets that allow overlapping?
Interesting question. I dont see much hope for a positive result for non convex polyhedra (even spherical). |

Generalizations of Boolean posets/lattices
Here is a link to a paper springerlink.com/content/v141451p51820482 which studies simultaneuosly a basic questions regarding ranks of incidence matrices for the Boolean lattice and for the lattice of subspaces over a field with q elements. |

How Does Random Noise Typically Look?
Dear Ben, Thanks! The crux of the question is if when we properly define a notion of "random noise" does it behave (when we restrict the number of garbled bits) like the noise you described, namely like a situation where the bits are garbled independently. Greg Kuperberg proposed to define random noise via random stochastic maps, see his answer. |

Dear Qiaochu, There are various interpretations of the meaning of "examples" for this question and it is nice to see them all. |
