Just wanted to recommend two blogs that I discovered quite recently. One is DZB’s blog, where I learnt about the really cool Database of L-functions, modular forms, and related objects. The other one is Chromotopy, where I particularly enjoy the posts of Eric Peterson. A few sample posts from Eric: Iwasawa theory for chromatic localizations, a series of posts on the Devinatz-Hopkins-Smith paper, and Bundles for adults.

Michael Nielsen’s TED talk Open Science Now! from earlier this year was recently posted on the TED site. For people already interested in these things it doesn’t contain any surprises, but the ideas are certainly worth spreading, and the Polymath project features as the opening story :-)

Rick Jardine recently posted a draft on his webpage for a book on local homotopy theory. He writes: “This a partial, rough manuscript for a monograph, which is tentatively to be published by Springer-Verlag. The book is meant to be a basic account of the homotopy theories of simplicial sheaves and presheaves, and the stable homotopy theory of presheaves of spectra. Selected applications are included.” The pdf file is available here.

Until quite recently, the first 10 volumes of the Bourbaki seminars were under subscriber-access only at NUMDAM, but now they are freely available! These 10 volumes cover the years 1948-1968 and hence contain many gems from the early days of scheme theory and the development of cohomological tools in algebraic geometry.

Great news – the wonderful handbook of K-theory is now freely available online here. It contains a number of useful and well-written survey articles, including Levine’s survey on mixed motives, Kahn’s survey on conjectures in arithmetic geometry, Gillet’s survey on K-theory and intersection theory, and much much more.

I found a really nice page today, maintained by Aravind Asok, with notes and resources on motivic homotopy theory. Worth checking out.
