Espen Haug book launch

Espen was kind enough to invite me to speak at the launch of his Derivatives: Models on Models at the Oslo Stock Exchange last week.

BJLesson

My talk was on Blackjack (I hope to have it on the site soon) and Espen spoke about the missing history of derivatives (his lecture also to be posted shortly).

This was followed by lots of very nice and free (NNT, are you reading this?!) food and drink, and an exhibition of some derivatives art.

The evening ended for some of us at around 2am, shortly after a visit to “Zinatra’s” for karaoke. (Fortunately Mrs W was there to sing Smells Like Teen Spirit, I swear I was only miming!)
