One Step Ahead


A model of smart storytelling and pure inspiration.

Stephen J. Dubner, co-author: Freakonomics, Superfreakonomics, Think Like A freak and When To Rob A Bank.

A great guy who took lateral and creative thinking and applied it to bigger social problems. I think there’s a huge opportunity for that kind of thing.
