Unfortunately, all too often the phrase Euclidean geometry has become
code for what 100 years ago was called modern geometry. It is no longer
modern, though there are many Euclidean problems that are. Classical
non-Euclidean geometry often makes relatively few connections with
revitalized aspects of these same subjects. Often the key to interest in
these newer areas is applications; unfortunately, there is still bias
against applicability, especially in geometry.
