Just wanted to ask here because there have been several questions in the official thread with no response:

Where did the official study group Zoom go? The link is no longer functional.

Edit: Also super pumped for the ethics lesson!

Quick google search with Nigerian names does not have the same poor results as Sweeney Latanya. Interesting observation.

Can you give me an example name? I wonder if it depends on location.

Are there references re IBM and Nazis and their complicity etc. Didnt see any in the video.

Chika ejebe, Chinedu Ojokwu, Ikenna Uchenna, Ikechukwu chizoba. Location, like you said, could be an issue. Also, these names are for a particular tribe in Nigeria. Other tribes may be different.
