On the Same Page as Miss Manners, Margaret Atwood, Zadie Smith, and Tenley Albright

The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University has posted its 2010 Winter Newsmakers. It was a nice and very pleasant surprise to see my latest book, Fragile Networks: Identifying Vulnerabilities and Synergies in an Uncertain World, co-authored with Patrick Qiang, noted on the same page and between Miss Manners' most recent book and the latest novel by Margaret Atwood, The Year of the Flood. The list includes highlights also about Dr. Tenley Albright, the former Olympic figure skater and medical doctor (who had polio at age 11), as well as the award-winning novelist Zadie Smith.

Let's say that having been a Radcliffe Fellow in 2005-2006, I am certainly in some amazing "company!"
