See You in San Diego at Rational Ground
Speaking at Rational Ground will be an exciting chance to meet some long-time Covid data acquaintances
As I was writing last week about how the CDC finally caught up to a year-old myocarditis study, I started chatting with Josh Stevenson, one of the authors of that study. Stevenson is involved with Rational Ground, a publication / group / affiliation that deals with Covid data and the consequences of the mitigations meant to arrest the spread of Covid. This affiliation was unfairly used to tar both Stevenson and the paper he co-authored as “anti-vax” and “anti-science” when he is nothing of the sort.
As we spoke, he mentioned he was attending the Rational Ground conference in San Diego on October 8th. One thing led to another and now he and I are doing a panel at the conference. I’m really looking forward to it; this will be the first conference I’ve attended since 2019 and there are already a number of people I’m looking forward to meeting irl (as the kids say).
If you’d like to attend the conference, tickets are still available.
Even if you aren’t available for the conference, if you’re in the area, please reach out. I love meeting people and San Diego is such a lovely place. There might be a good opportunity for a pre-conference or post-conference get-together.
Even More Shameless Promotion
I was recently propositioned by Ben Sixsmith (a fantastic young writer) to write about the seductive power of models for The Critic magazine. I jumped at the chance to recount my history with various models, their allure and attraction, how they promise the world but ultimately leave us befuddled and adrift.
I had fun writing it and I’m grateful to Ben and to The Critic for the opportunity.
