Hi Shannon,

These are a little off topic.  Appreciate the tolerance.  The topic is 
so fundamental, and the dynamics of exponential growth is one of the 
reasons that cob is so important and a part of the solution!

Also see this video series.  Parts 3 and 4 are most important for the 
topic of growth.
All the episodes are very good.
