Idea
Where in algebraic geometry one considers spaces which are formally dual to commutative rings , in “2-algebraic geometry” one considers spaces formally dual to 2-rigs , namely to certain tensor categories or more generally to tensor (∞,1)-categories .

Curiously, the more general idea of regarding certain abelian categories and certain linear A-∞ categories (stable (∞,1)-categories ) as analogs of categories of quasicoherent sheaves on some space (i.e. ignoring the monoidal structure) is much older, this is the program of derived noncommutative geometry , see also at derived algebraic geometry – Relation to noncommutative geometry .

The systematic use of the tensor product structure here goes back to (Balmer 02 ) and the concept of the spectrum of a tensor triangulated category . In (Lurie ) the concept of “2-affine scheme ” is studied more systematically. Then (CJF 11 ) introduce the terminology of “2-algebraic geometry”.
