Today’s meeting was actually to discuss an upcoming feature for this very blog. Over the summer we plan to run a series of posts introducing the lab members, and we thought it would be a good to have a single set of questions that everyone answered. Today’s lab meeting was all about coming up with those questions.

Everyone had been warned and asked to come along with a question they thought might generate some interesting answers, and actually everyone pretty much had! Some were more flippant than others (“What time is your alarm set for?” was discarded, unfortunately, along with “Who most inspires you?” – a good question, but was felt to be potentially sycophantic). In the end we’ve got 9 questions, some quick, some quite open-ended that feature the past, present and future. Hopefully a good mix that will spark some interesting answers.

The answers will be posted at intervals after the end of term.
