Blogging Cats

The categorical blogosphere is rapidly expanding, now with Jeff Morton's new blog, Theoretical Atlas, and the Infinite Seminar. Meanwhile Urs Schreiber reports on being mobbed by reporters in Croatia, as he attends the maths conference on Categories and Geometry. It sounds like a fantastic conference: Batanin, Cartier, Kontsevich, Leinster and many others will be there. And what looks like the first real categorical physics conference has just ended in Texas. Lastly, check out the hot catsters lectures on You Tube.

Who knows, maybe Urs will someday get a shot at a TV show, like those YouTube superstars. Most likely it would be reality show, featuring Urs' journeys to category conferences around the globe. :)

Sure they do, once TV shows are recorded and uploaded to the net. ;)

The future is probably in YouTube and podcasting. Category Theory will have its YouTube stars, while major networks continue to flog strings. Good when Category Theory gets an online audience, and Kea's blig is much more fun than woit
