Bill, I saw your talk at Khosla Ventures about the importance of finding alternatives to meat, eggs, and dairy to improve sustainability and health. Where do you see these alternatives going in the next decade, and does your foundation have any plans to fund them?
Edit: to add a link to the talk he gave at Khosla Ventures.
Edit: if you want to learn more about the environmental impact of meat production, the Wiki page is pretty solid.. Here's a short video on the animal ethics aspect, and here's info on the health aspect. (Sorry, not the greatest health compilation, but tons of peer-reviewed studies out there relating to meat consumption and heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, obesity, etc.)

I've heard about ag-gag laws - can you tell us more about them and what's going on with them?

Thank you for speaking out and allowing people to film what's really happening on chicken farms in the U.S. Because of the staggering number of chickens raised for food in the U.S., it seems to me that one of the best things people can do is simply eat less chickens (as well as push for better conditions). What are your thoughts?

Have you investigated farms yourself? If so, where and what was it like?

Considering the vast majority of land animals raised for food are chickens (~90%) and endure immense suffering do you have any plans to 3d-print chicken in the future? Since people eat so much chicken, I'm sure it's very environmentally taxing like beef and pork.
Edit: PS - it's really awesome you're doing this and I think it's a really innovative way to solve some of our world's biggest problems.
Edit 2: For those who are interested in current meat production, here is a really good IAMA from a former factory farm undercover investigator: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/147bjg/i_was_an_undercover_investigator_documenting/
