Black swans

The upcoming Darren Aronofsky movie Black Swan seems to have nothing to do with Bruce Sterling's story "Black Swan," on our syllabus.  The movie's title comes from Tchaikovsky, the story's from the management theories of Nassim Nicholas Taleb -- though there are lots of other black swans.  Enough for a paper devoted to them, probably.
