Poll results and next reading

Leave a comment

The people have spoken!

So we have a mixed decision about when to meet, and a clear one about how to choose the next readings. In light of the first result, I really like Lee’s idea about having a second meeting but in a date and time other than Tuesday 5PM EDT. I think it might be a good way of having meetings every week, so people that can’t make it on the time we’ve been using could chose a different time, and people can thus attend that if they can but still count on the bi-weekly one if not. We can talk about it next meeting!

Time to choose our next reading!

Based on your input, it’s clear you share my concern about simply deciding based on current ranks, given the spread of rankings. So I’m going to select two papers at random from the 10 best ranked ones (based on the median, excluding the first one which we’ve already read), and you can vote on which we should read on our next meeting Tuesday, October 2nd.

Well, look at that: looks like we’ll have a social insect showdown! Cast your votes! Poll will be open until Friday, to give us some time to read the paper before next Tuesday!
