I had a quick ride to the city yesterday to attend a New Yorker gathering at Avenues School featuring a talk by James Surowiecki, the New Yorker's brilliant financial columnist. The magazine held a lovely reception and we got to glimpse this amazing new school that opened its doors six weeks ago.
James Surowiecki's talk was incredibly thought provoking. Without notes or visuals, he gave an engaging lecture which kept many in the audience on the front of their chairs in order to catch every word. The evening ended on a lively note while our brains were brimming from the insights we just heard.
