    infinity-category

    I just added a link to Lurie's "What is...?" paper.

    But note that that article is about (,1)(\infty, 1)-categories.

    Thanks Adeel! We were indeed lacking that reference.

    While David is of course right about what he says above, on the other hand our old and woefully neglected entry ∞-category didn’t really make that clear at all, nor did it really point to (∞,1)-category.

    I have now added a few paragraphs to the Idea-section at ∞-category that try to amplify that the term “\infty-category” is used to mean two rather different things, and that one of these meaning is discussed not in this entry, but in (∞,1)-category.

    I also moved the What is…-reference to (∞,1)-category.
