There's been a lot of commentary, and I've gotten a lot of emails, about the name choice for this so-called prize.
I can't find a reason for it. Maybe it's the guy's mother's name.
What I do know is that it's NOT Nat Sobel who is a reputable agent (Barry Eisler's in fact) and a good guy.
Before you conspiracy buffs start hitching up the bandwagon, I'll bet you dollars to doughnuts the Sobol guys didn't intentionally try to confuse anyone. Conspiracies require thought, planning, knowledge. I don't see any of that on the basics let alone the subtleties of the Sobol website. I just count myself lucky they didn't call it the Misssnerk Prize
