    How does the synthetic meat group feel about starting a dropbox folder to drop in references etc?

    Hey all,

    A few additional background references and thoughts to get the debate going:

    – Prof Ralph Sims (Massey) on Synthetic Meat in NZ – http://www.nzherald.co.nz/the-country/news/article.cfm?c_id=16&objectid=11754286&ref=rss
    – Interview with synthetic meat researcher in RadioNZ – https://www.callaghaninnovation.govt.nz/news-and-events/mark-post-growing-meat

    This is a pretty expansive topic so you might have to prioritise the angles that you address. What are the primary issues? And what are some of the more peripheral issues that might end up playing a large part in how the issue plays out?
