Blink and The Wisdom of Crowds
Today's newsletter is more of a test of the newly reinstalled system, so I'll keep it short and send just this item, a discussion between Malcolm Gladwell, the author of The Tipping Point and Blink!, and James Surowiecki, author of The Wisdom of Crowds. The format is interesting - a back-and-forth exchange over the course of a week (this week, in fact; the final installment is tomorrow).

Just to keep you up to date - Not all services on my website are running yet. But but let me extend thanks to Luc, Shaun and Raphael, who have undertaken the substantial task of setting up the new server. Also, if you are trying to contact me, my email is not fully functional, so please be patient. By James Surowiecki and Malcolm Gladwell, Slate, January 11, 2004 [Refer][Research][Reflect]
