Nassim Taleb Graphic

This arrived a couple weeks ago from Nassim Taleb. Regardless of where your view falls on the black swan spectrum, I hope you'll like the graphic. One hallmark of a good graphic is that it repays careful study, as with a good map (which is a good graphic). Nassim's Genealogy certainly passes that test. I found myself thinking about its contents and assertions for a long time. (You can blow it up in your browser by clicking on it. That should do the trick, but if it's still not big enough, start hitting ctrl+.)
