Uh... I'm thinking...

There are a couple different projects I've thought about which would be interesting. I might work to extend the inference model Frank and I made so that there are more turtles and they breed and die (generations). Not quite sure what I'd learn from that. To build on this, I think it would be really interesting to have some sort of genetic trait that would help with solving some specific problem. Whether this would be learning the most useful index for starting a partitioning algorithm or something completely different I don't know.

I'd also be interested in modeling the model for word of mouth epidemics that Malcolm Gladwell outlined in The Tipping Point. No idea what I'll actually do.
