I grabbed dinner with Nima, Caryn, and Michael at Mardini’s Deli Cafe.  The food was very good, and the conversation was excellent.  We talked about the automation of life, and how that relates to the ability to express yourself, especially when relating to others.  We didn’t come to any solid conclusions except that more automation would be nice, and that we look forward to when we can easily have more things taken care of for us without thinking about them.
