    Would this make better sense as a topic under Society?

      This fits well into a narrative I am building for Fringe itself.

        Well, actually I was in conversation with Tile Von Damm of MOD Institute for them to present this for our track! He and Anne Katrin Fenk were game when I proposed the idea but I didn't hear back from them after the initial consent. Although we would have really liked it as part of Society track, glad that Naresh himself will be presenting it now!
