Salt Lake City – What's the journey like from anonymous computer programmer to nerd folk icon? Ask Ken Jennings. After 75 games and 2,642 correct answers on Jeopardy!, Jennings has chronicled his minutiae-mad obsession in his new book Brainiac: Adventures in the Curious, Competitive, Compulsive World of Trivia Buffs. Ken Jennings will be in Utah next week as part of the Great Salt Lake Book Festival, and joins Doug Tuesday to determine if trivia serves some not-so-trivial purpose after all.
