Ask him what his views are of memetics ;-)
He says some stuff about cultural change in his _Full House_ book, which
might give you something to start with though maybe with Wilkins (ne plus
ultra?) and others here we might come up with a pretty good directed
question that might get Gould's spandrel infested brain firing to full
capacity while addressing the meme topic. This is an opportunity that should
not be missed.
I'd love to meet Gould. I should be very jealous of you. Looking forward to
his new book.
