Thanks to everyone who has posted a comment about what you'd like to discuss with your colleagues. You'll see the topics you've suggested--all of which are interesting and important--appearing in upcoming blog posts, and I am really looking forward to seeing what folks have to say about them. And keep on replying to that post if you think of other topics you'd like to discuss!
