comment Use of derivators to the theory of motives?
However, a beautiful idea of Ayoub is to modify the definition of derivator, replacing the 2-category of diagrams by the 2-category of diagrams of schemes over some base, and imposing various axioms. The resulting notion, which he calls an algebraic derivator, essentially captures the whole formalism of six functors. I am not sure, but I believe that Grothendieck probably did not have anything like this in mind when he wrote Pursuing Stacks or Les Derivateurs (and I will be very happy if an expert could confirm).

comment Use of derivators to the theory of motives?
In the motivic world, model categories and infinity-categories are used as refinements of triangulated categories. These are "stronger" refinements than derivators (in some precise sense), so I doubt that the theory of derivators can offer any improvements to the theory of motives.

Hi Pieter, I guess I should have waited for you to finish it and post it here yourself then! Still, I find it an invaluable resource already, so thanks a lot :)

comment Etale topos as a classifyng topos ?
The question is answered in arxiv.org/pdf/0902.1130v2.pdf (though surely known much earlier).

comment Mysterious quotes (at least for me)
Right, I should have said derived Morita invariance. And Orlov's remark was about the derived category of a commutative scheme.

comment why are motives more serious than “naive” motives?
@VivekShende, Chow motives are supposed to be the semisimple objects in the abelian category of mixed motives (whose derived category is supposed to coincide with Voevodsky's DM). There is a functor from Chow motives to DM which is known to be fully faithful.

comment Does “simplicial” commute with “Bousfield localization”?
Of course, this has nothing to do with $\Delta$ and works more generally for presheaf (∞-)categories.
