Paul Kedrosky Presentation on Venture Capital and Catastrophism

I am a big fan of Paul Kedrosky’s Infectious Greed blog. He’s clearly a data junkie, finds some remarkable pieces of data and representations of them, and makes some great, non-intuitive connections across different data sets and applications.

While I did not attend his speech yesterday in San Francisco, I did pick up this very interesting and very topical set of slides off his blog.

If you go to Slideshare, you can see a bit of of the (very necessary) voice-over in the comments. I love the slides on venture returns, the increasingly correlation of hedge-fund strategies, the dearth of .400 hitters in baseball, and the examples of Web 2.0 collaboration and communication during the Southern California fires.
