Didn’t know this had been. Looks interesting!!

I made a guest post at the n-Category Café, thanks to a kind invitation by John Baez! The plan is for it to be the first of a series:

math thoughts

my favorite things in math involve finding discrete, combinatorial structure in squishy, continuous things like smooth functions and manifolds (or vice versa, finding some analysis-y object that encodes properties of some discrete thing that you're interested in)

i always found the de facto division of mathematics into algebra-y stuff and analysis-y stuff weird and uncomfortable but hey, i've never really been into binaries :V
