If you're trying to physically locate me over the next two weeks, try room #3 in Ziskind building of the Weizmann Institute, in Rehovot, Israel -- where I'm being very kindly hosted by Gideon Schechtman. Blogging will be light due to the tight schedule (giving 3 talks: Jeruslem, Weizmann, Technion), but I'll try to report on interesting seminars that I heard (like the one today).
A quick note about the comments: they're unmoderated and no registration is required; I'm hoping that no moderation on my part will ever be necessary. It's fine occasionally to lapse into politics, but I was hoping to see more math discussions!.. Finally -- I am plain curious as to who's reading this barely-a-week-old blog and leaving comments. If you'd leave a name when commenting I'd be much obliged!
