If you see me talking to myself, do not disturb, I'm having a staff meeting.
Professionally there has been a stall or two in a few projects--one really hit home. A rare disease of personal interest to me. A lovely neighbor, curator of ancient art, was misdiagnosed and then diagnosed with a rare Parkinsonian type disease. Pharma was interested until it wasn't deemed profitable, no funding, no molecule.
Many colleagues imagine it is only sunshine and smiles in the independent world of digital media. My two passions of writing and analytics speak to each other through my work. Leaving one or the other out of the conversation results in a phantom limb of sorts. But often they are at odds.
Requests to write are often saddled with datasets not up to the task at hand--regardless of client enthusiasm. When I decline, I know there will be an endless pool of writers only too happy to cash the check regardless of the chasm between ethics and action.
You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down -- Toni Morrison

Thank you for making a donution!
In a world of "evidence-based" medicine I am a bigger fan of practice-based evidence.
Remember the quote by Upton Sinclair...
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”
