  1. Just found your blog, glad it exists, will follow it.

  2. I just stumbled across your blog (actually trying to find the exact title of me thesis while at work...), and I am so glad that you are putting this together. It truly made my week to see that my year of research didn't go TOTALLY unrecognized! This would have been a great help several years ago, but I am encouraged to see the growing academic interest in Weil. Her thought was very formative for me, and if there is any way I can be of any help in this project, please let me know!
