Friday the 13th Black Swan


What could be a more appropriate thing to do on Friday the 13th than have lunch with Fooled by Randomness and The Black Swan author Nassim Taleb?

I am looking forward to an interesting meal . . . (apologies for the shameless name dropping)


UPDATE: February (Friday the) 13th, 2009

Fascinating lunch — he is a very interesting guy. We dislike many of the same people, institutes, and Nobel price winners.

The funniest thing is that there were 3 of us having lunch– 3 big old bears in midtown NYC — and we probably were the loudest and had the most fun of any table in the joint.

(Our table also used the word Fuck more than all the other tables combined.)
