I’m re-listening to the audible versions of Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics. As I’m going through it, I’m convinced that the IBM Information on Demand Conference committee couldn’t have chosen better guest speakers for a conference that is all about data!
What are these books about? Steven Levitt is an economist who is intrigued by the stories behind the data. He’s managed to find data in the most unlikely places about topics that are not well documented. Stephen Dubner is the journalist who has an exceptional talent of putting together the stories that give radical conclusions to the data.

Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt are presenting at the keynote session at IOD that takes place Wednesday morning…. and come by to get your book signed after the keynote for an incredibly short signing session from 10:00 - 10:20 am.
