ESPN.com just published a long article with Bill Simmons and Malcolm Gladwell. Gladwell, a sociologist by trade, spends a lot of time talking about pop culture and the like. Seeing that article reminded me of a talk by Gladwell from a few years back.
Posted on the greatest site out there, Gladwell’s Ted.com talk speaks to Howard Moskowitz and spaghetti sauce. While the discussion is a bit more focused on the nature of choice and happiness, it should be of some interest to foodies.
Though I find myself more drawn to the ideology of Barry Schwartz (check out his talks), Gladwell makes some very interesting points. All of these chats are a worthwhile commitment of your time.
