So, Mark, how did you budget this? I mean, are there specific costs that are pretty much known? What were your big ticket items that you spent your budget on?

I just wonder how you do this either as a pitch to backers or as a goal for self producing.

Thank you for doing this AMA. I know several insurance salesmen and most of them are very nice, caring people, making a living like everyone else. What do you think drives the constant cost increases in medical care? I recently had a surgery that "costs" $40,000 and I think it would be considered minor surgery.

Also, even though I met my deductible, my private insurance provider bill shows almost every charge to be over the allowable amount. This basically makes it look as if the hospital is overcharging, even after the insurance company boasts 'discounts' for having their policy. Just who is getting rich here?

How did you get started with your books? What prompted you to research the ideas presented in The Tipping Point?

And what's your favorite movie or tv series?

Hi Margaret Atwood, thanks for doing this. I'm currently reading Oryx and Crake but honestly I read when walking the dogs on the canal near my home and haven't gotten very far. It's nice to hear someone else who is older making a difference to the kids. What do you think about their desire to live longer and stay young forever? Not that it's anything new, of course.
