Anyone ever hear of these groups? Anyone here belong to one. Seems similar to what goes on here, except in person.

Socrates taken to the masses (http://www.usatoday.com/life/lifestyle/2005-05-30-socrates_x.htm)

This is an older article from last year, but it has some interesting info that may be of use.

Funny thing is, the gentleman in the article, Christopher Phillips, started doing this around 10 years ago in Montclair, N.J., not far from where I was living at the time. My friend in the Montclair Library mentioned something about this kind of thing around then. We were never able to follow up on it, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was this guy.

The concept sounds very tantalizing. I'm gonna cruise around the net and see just how many Socrates Cafe's there are now and where they are. Might be worth a little look-see.

Thanks for topic, farmer.
