An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.

Note: Due to the number of media appearances, the harriedness of the author, and (presumably) your limited appetite for listening to every single interview I've ever conducted, the below list is not comprehensive.  If you're looking for the greatest hits, my personal favorites include Talk of the Nation, KQED, Paul Kedrosky's terrific podcast, and -- especially -- New Zealand Public Radio's Kim Hill Show, whose eponymous host is exceptionally funny and smart.
