    Very good interview, hope Taleb keeps on writing, and discussing philosophy, and yes support the little guy, how else did we ever get anything done, and yes I’m just a kid, what do I know, or realise.Clearly, Taleb is a creative genius though, although borrowed ideas always remain.

    Thanks for the comment David. I’m only a little bit concerned that it might be another five years before we get another book. And in another recent interview NNT said he much prefers his library to being out in public so, I won’t be surprised if after this book promoting is done we won’t be seeing much of Mr. Taleb.
