Otherwise, we will continue discussion on Yuval's three books, "SAPIENS - A Brief History of Humankind, Homo Deus & 21 Lessons for the 21st Century- If you have future suggestion, bring up at end of meeting or email me at [masked]!

You do not need to read or have this book to participate in discussion and our discussion will broaden out to any timely topic that is on each of our mind. Starter topic is just an ice breaker. Those who have or started to read the book will have the first shot in starting our conversation.

Courtesy Coffee, cream and sugar provided. Conversations always lively and unconventional.

We will have a very short business meeting, brief introduction circle and then have a round table discussion on our starter topic, and then to other topics of the day, perhaps elections! Occasionally we may book a guest speaker.

Good news! Due to generous attendee voluntary donations, meetup site and coffee service have been paid in full.
