An Influential Islander: Mark Anderson

From the San Juan Islander:

This interview with Mark Anderson of Friday Harbor is the second in Janet Thomas’ series about Influential Islanders.

1.What brought you to San Juan Island and how long have you lived here?

I first came to San Juan to assistant teach at the Friday Harbor Labs under a brilliant scientist, Dr. Peter Hochachka, who had just founded a new field of science called biochemical ecology. I was his Ph.D. student at the University of British Columbia. A short time later, I came back, when I realized I was not going to be a university researcher for the rest of my life. I left again for six months to write the Great American Novel, and ended up being the only (invisible) guy living in an all-lesbian apartment complex in Boston, running out of funds, and then flying to the Caribbean to be the chief scientist on a tall ship….

Policy Brief: Rapidly Emerging Crisis:

Immediate Action-Items to Address the Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19) Outbreak in New York

Authors: Dr. Megan Coffee, MD, PhD; Evan Anderson, CEO, INVNT/IP


Executive Summary

The situation of rising COVID-19 caseloads in New York City is rapidly becoming a crisis on the level of the current situation in Lombardy, Italy.

FREE ISSUE: SNS: Corona: The Missing Data

Corona: The Missing Data

  1. Introduction: Latent Parameters and New Metrics

    by Mark Anderson

This week, we’re going to look at the COVID-19 virus story not from the perspective of what we know, but rather – and more important – what we do not know.

Yesterday a (non-technical) friend in the hospitality business asked me what I thought about the virus and its impacts. I told him the virus is like a mirror, with the epidemic(s) showing us things about our countries and ourselves that are both good and bad.

Clearly, a lack of good data would be at the top of the latter list.

While China’s global propaganda machine has ramped into full steam ahead, praising Xi for his leadership, the rest of the world stands back in wonder at the lies, delays, firings, deaths, and overall inconsistency between Chinese states with regard to data reportage. I don’t think our members will find anyone, inside or outside China, who believes the government’s numbers. This lack of data integrity has been the largest impediment to global success in preventing and treating the disease.
