To redeem myself for everyone who didn’t want to see my favorite scene from Casablanca on this site.
Here is a really interesting interview conducted at the 92d street Y in NYC with Malcolm Gladwell.
If you’re not familiar with Gladwell, he is a very talented New Yorker writer who has written two best-selling books about trends. The first, The Tipping Point, try’s to explain massive implications of small-scale social events, the second , Blink, explains how the human subconscious interprets events or cues and how past experiences allow people to make informed decisions very rapidly.
His newest book is Outliers which examines how a person’s environment affects his possibility and opportunity for success.
He’s discussing the new book in this interview. The interview is fairly long but definitely worth watching this weekend.
