  1. Read your interview with a topologist – interestingly practical sort of guy. I’ve known a couple of (exactly two) topologists, and they WAY did not think like I do. First one I met, circa 1980, was the chairman of the math department at Atlanta Junior College (as an undergrad at GSU, I tutored chemistry and math at AJC and elsewhere to supplement my meager income from scholarships and student assistance-ships). This chap introduced me to the notion that doughnuts, coffee cups, and humans are all topologically equivalent (I leave the deformations to the interested student – hint: consider holes and dimples)…very different world view than mine as an algebraist.
