You can (and should) sign this even if you're not a US citizen, or a US-based academic.

After nearly two years of preparations, I am more excited about the start of our Pseudorandomness semester at Simons than I could possibly have imagined!
Our boot camp lectures have been outstanding so far, and are available to view at https://simons.berkeley.edu/workshops/pseudorandomness2017-boot-camp

A very valuable new mathematics resource--I hope it continues to grow at the same rate (and level of quality).

Universities around the UK are in the process of signing huge contracts with Elsevier to obtain access to ScienceDirect, their journal platform, for another five years. In this blog post I give some information about the deal and say why I think it is a bad one. One of the worst aspects of it is that Jisc Collections, the body negotiating on our behalf, feebly agreed to confidentiality clauses. So although I know more than I have written, I am not allowed to make it public. That is, the academics on whose behalf the decision to spend a huge amount of money is being made are not allowed to scrutinize the deal in any detail. It is hard to imagine anything more contrary to the spirit of objective enquiry that Elsevier claims to promote.
