Open tasks[edit]

  • Begin formulating ideas and topics to research for "Study 3" (discuss now!)
  • Discuss what research needs to be conducted and what would be good metrics to gather.
  • Add thoughts/contribute to any of the completed studies. (Study 1, Study 2, Obama article study)

Research questions[edit]

These are some preliminary questions may stimulate future studies. Not all questions may be answerable, so think of it more as a brainstorming section.
