On the motivic Thom isomorphism, by Jack Morava

The existence of a good theory of Thom isomorphisms in some rational category of mixed Tate motives would permit a nice interpolation between ideas of Kontsevich on deformation quantization, and ideas of Connes and Kreimer on a Galois theory of renormalization, mediated by Deligne's ideas on motivic Galois groups.
