By Club consensus during a 10 January 2016 planning session, the “poll” at the bottom of the Program page has been removed. Members are asked to post a comment each week. If you don’t have something interesting to say–although with our members we know what you have to say is interesting–feel free to say “Present” or “Here” or “Yaba Daba Doo” or write your favorite color, just let us know you were here.

We invest a lot of our time being right. Or wanting to be right. Or thinking we’re right.

What if we’re wrong?

In this TED Talk, Kathryn Schulz says that’s OK, and explains why.

Here’s her bio from the TED Talk site.
