Lunch Chat for 11/10/11

John Perry
For the next lunch chat, let's talk about something we can all relate to: procrastination. Specifically, I think it's high time that we read a short article by John Perry from the Chronicle of Higher Education which was recently (and belatedly) honored by an Ig-Nobel prize in Literature: "How to Procrastinate and Still Get Things Done". As usual, we'll meet in Coleman 62 at noon where you'll find soup and homemade bread.

For a write-up on this year's Ig-Nobel Prize recipients, check out this article in the Chronicle.

Perry is one of the co-hosts of the terrific and widely syndicated radio show, Philosophy Talk: "The program that questions everything . . . except your intelligence." Every week, you can stream the current program for free.
