This advice on *how* to say no is graceful. I'd add that I always try to suggest someone else who might like the opportunity. (I usually ask my speaking agent—who I signed with mostly so SHE could say no—to relay suggestions on my behalf.)

Remember those stories about the woman who was "diagnosed" with climate change? @roseveleth did some digging & that wasn't quite right. On patient ethics & privacy, medical histories, and systemic health impacts:

P.S. David has a great newsletter, which I read as soon as it comes in. Latest is on film editing () but I also enjoyed a recent one in defense of NY resolutions, pointing out that even if 80% fail, 20% don't & discussing the importance of timing.

I unfortunately have class at this time, otherwise would've signed up in an instant. @tsu_jing 's book on Chinese information technology is great (I'm running an excerpt in Wired!) & @DavidEpstein is just an all-around interesting, rigorous thinker. Book & event both recommended.
