  1. Thank you for compiling the conversations around NYC. I found some interesting conversation groups which I was not aware of.

  2. A shout out to George and his group of regulars at his Socrates Cafe in Queens. I meetup with them twice, and I enjoyed the interesting questions voted on and the lively exchange each time.
    Below are the questions voted on from their last meetup:

    “For those who were unable to make it, we had stimulating dialogue at our last Meet Up on Monday, November 19th, 2012. The “winning” question was submitted by new member Jenny (Welcome!).

    Below is a list of all the questions submitted that evening:
    1) Are crowds wise or ignorant mobs? (courtesy of Marc)
    2) What should the US government be responsible for in order to take care of its citizens? (courtesy of Paul)
    3) Can we develop as human beings? If so, what would be the next paradigm shift in human evolution? (courtesy of Mizan)
    4) Why do natural disasters effect some more than others? (courtesy of Miriam)
    5) Do you really feel sorry for natural disaster victims or is it a matter of being happy it wasn’t you? (courtesy of Phil)
    6)Why is the symbol of Lincoln becoming more popular? (courtesy of Jorge)
    7) Does charity begin at home? (courtesy of Liang)
    ***8) In order to lead effectively, should public officials have really high moral standards? (courtesy of Jenny)”
