What to talk about - well some possible topics are:

1) Inequality - how bad is the problem? What is likely to reverse it?

2) Disease model researchers predict that Facebook will see a rapid decline, causing the site to lose 80% of its peak user base between 2015 and 2017.

3) If they can turn spacecraft data into listenable music, what data would you like to turn into art? Population growth statistics into romantic music? Age related macular degeneration statistics into impressionist art? Gymnastic record holder information into dance?

4) What about these common core standards? How do we have standardized tests for emotional intelligence? Social intelligence?

Probably we'll talk about other stuff instead, but who knows?

Wear good shoes and bring water. Also bring things to talk about, problems you want help solving, interesting trivia to share, ...

Please try to be on time, as we will leave at the posted time, unless we get a call, so feel free to call my cell:
