I'm Michael Gottlieb. And I write a lot. Really. Want someone to write a page on cubing math, methods or theory? I'm your man.

I recently uploaded the Wikipedia images of 2x2 through 7x7 cubes and then used them to fix up the templates (see below) and NxNxN Cube articles (which I rewrote).


  • Clock, Magic, Master Magic articles
  • My columns method, perhaps also write up EG, OFOTA, etc. in full articles, and link to them.
  • Gabbasoft, Iso, AnimCube, CubeExplorer, etc etc etc
  • Fix up 4x4/5x5/6x6/7x7 cubing methods, or just have them redirect to an extensive big cube solving methods page with links to all the major ones (like the 3x3 page)
