Abstract/Media

We'll do some down-to-earth examples, including a famous example (Moore spectra) illustrating that "ideals" don't accompany the theory of ring spectra. I'll also recap the Nikolaus-Scholze construction of the Tate Diagonal and give some indication as to why some people might care about it.
