Abstract: Based on work of Thomason, Balmer defined a way to think about varieties from a purely category-theoretic point of view. By considering not only the triangulated structure of the derived category but also the tensor product, one can (nearly) do geometry within the category D^b(X) itself. I will discuss the construction of the 'Balmer spectrum' and give some pertinent examples.
