Bob will select an essay or item from the current media, possibly including short TED talks, to help us better understand what has been happening, what the future might bring, what is innovative or insightful and what is on the bleeding edge. He looks for material to engage your thinking and, while he tries for short and easy reading, he makes no promises. The class and its active discussion by all participants bring views and faults to the surface in ways which help us toward the truth — not an easy thing, but always stimulating and fun! And yes, there is much to talk about these days! *Please note: An email address is necessary to receive articles in advance of the sessions. The views and opinions expressed in these discussions are solely those of the contributors and participants.
