Had the chance last night to grab drinks with Stephen Dubner (Freakonomics) and Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan). Smart, smart dudes. The two of them were definitely clicking on economics and philosophy to such a deep extent that I felt like the little kid wearing dad’s suit when trying to contribute myself.
That being said, they are both gracious people and kept me involved in the conversation, plus Nassim ordered lots of great cheese.
Now adding “get Nassim’s reading list” to my fantasy “For Sabbatical” plan.
