Meetup with Author--Postponed :(

Well, what I feared happened and when I wrote to confirm, Dr. Carroll said his travel plans had changed and he will not be here for the February meeting. I'd like to postpone instead of having the meeting without him, since it seems we still will be able to do this at some point. I was really enjoying the book too!!

I am not going to assign a new book for February. If someone would like to put forward a physics/astronomy book of some sort and lead the group themselves, let me know right away and I will post it. I'm going to take this as a sign that I really need this month off.

Thanks guys,

See you in March and I will post the updated date for Dr. Carroll as soon as we figure it out.

My proposal: one of John Brockman's books where a bunch of scientists/researchers/intellectuals are asked
a question. I suggest we do "What Have You Changed Your Mind About?: Today's Leading Minds Rethink Everything", where the question was "What Have You Changed Your Mind About? Why?". It's wide-ranging, not
overly dense and complicated, and will probably provide many starting points for conversations.

The responses are also available online, so you don't necessarily have to buy the book:

Megan, could you please update the February meetup to give the book as "What Have You Changed Your Mind About?". Thanks!

(No one has e-mailed me to say they'll be getting the book and coming, but I'm happy to go to Panera on the day and bring my laptop in case no one else shows up.)
