Unless you’re famous for doing something terrible, having your own Wikipedia page is probably a point of pride. The question on Seth Stephens-Davidowitz’s mind is: What does it take to actually attain that level of prominence?
Stephens-Davidowitz is a former Google data scientist and Harvard-trained economist. He’s also the author of the book “Everybody Lies,” which presents research on how internet searches can get at people’s innermost thoughts. Instead of calling people into a lab, Stephens-Davidowitz prefers to look at what the masses are confessing to Google at 8:36 p.m. on a Wednesday.
