Report from London


I'm just back in New York after a busy, memorable and productive week in London. The highlights included:

...a public event to celebrate the Daring to Fail book. More than 50 people came out to the think tank Policy Exchange to hear a severely jet-lagged conversation between John Prideaux from The Economist and me about failure.

...a visit to 10 Downing Street to meet with one of the Prime Minister's crime and justice advisors.

...promising meetings with several potential funders of our London office.

...a trip to Emirates Stadium to see Arsenal defeat Barcelona in the Champions League.

You can guess for yourself which of these made the most lasting impression on me.
