Yea..thats why I put Malcolm Gladwell on the list. Hes not really an academic. Moreso I guess than Bill Gates but he did write a book and he knows a lot so there would be something to gain from him.


As for the list: Its for a project im doing with some people at Yale. I cant really go into it but maybe in the future (I know thats sounds pretty stupid but yea and thanks though)
