Looking back at one year of weekly blog posts

This blog started in November 2020 as a way to keep the conversation going among the participants of the online courses that we were running at SIDH. We started with some basic rules:
a. There would be a new post every Monday.
b. The posts would be a quick read of around 500 words.
c. The topics would be related to ideas explored in the online courses.

Looking back, the posts can be classified as:
