It's a pretty big number, but getting to that number is more interesting, as he then delves into the mathematics and science behind the wisdom of crowds, and how connected we are to each other (via Facebook or other networks). Great stuff!
Now the big plan is to try and figure out how to win those jelly bean contests.
