Despite being an executive at Dell, I didn’t have an invite to last weeks Dell World in Austin. Just a couple of the external speakers were President Bill Clinton and the Freakanomics authors and speakers Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt.

Dubner talks to the economist, Justin Wolfers, who takes what Dubner likes to call the anti-narcissist approach, the spotlight effect. Don’t over think it. You can read a transcript here.
