Just to let everyone know, the settings are such that any member can suggest a meetup, and once 3 people say they are going, it will be announced.

Maybe I should suggest a meetup on "How Mathematicians Think". I am running such a meetup for the Greater Philadelphia Thinking Society (http://www.meetup.com...­, but we already have 11 people on the waiting list!! I didn't know math could be so popular!

Maybe we should do the same topic in December? I could just suggest it, but why not ask first as a form of "thinking about it".

I've been thinking about the next meetup. I do not have time this summer or fall to read the good math books that I want to cover. I haven't found a good movie that would be legal to play for math movie night. Last night, I watched the first video in a series of five (5) by Keith Devlin on "Mathematics: Making the Invisible Visible". I'm wondering if it would be interesting to have a meetup on each video starting in August.

Here is the full video series: http://www.youtube.co...­ (5 videos totaling 8 hours 49 minutes)

Here is the first video which is a general overview of mathematics and its history: http://www.youtube.co...­

Would you enjoy discussing each of these videos for a meetup?

I would be fine with that. I also wanted to suggest going over Whitehead and Russell's Principia Mathematica if this group hasen't done that already.
