Thanks, Camille.

Yes, Noam and I had coffee when he was in the planning stages of the book,
and Andy and I were really just getting going with our (mostly online)
questioning and lampooning of innovation-speak. I think _The Know-It-Alls_
is a very good entry into the quickly expanding subgenre of Silicon Valley

For those who may not know Noam's book, the chapters are organized around
individuals, so it's also a handy reference for characters like Bezos,
Thiel, Andreessen, Zuckerberg . . . you know the folks. Here's a NYTs
Sunday Review piece related to the book, which got a lot of attention when
it came out:
