Wall Street Journal excerpt: Final Jeopardy

February 4, 2011Jeopardy book


The Wall Street Journal runs an excerpt from the Intro of Final Jeopardy in Saturday's edition. It's accompanied by an excellent article about the significance of Watson for computer science by Yale professor David Gerlernter.

More on the book:

* An interview I did with Paul Gillin, which he posted on TheInfoBoom blog.
* Len Edgerly featured a chat with me on his weekly Kindle Chronicles podcast.
* Josh Visser writes a story about Watson for Canada's CTV.
* Amazon's Tom Nissley talked to me for a podcast, which is now on the book page in two 11-minute segments, one and two. (I tried for a while to figure out how to embed these podcasts on the blog, but failed.)
