A very recent interview with the one-man show behind the Lancet report’s data collation. According to Chris, they may have as few as six employees all told? Nothing in Wayback, nothing at Wikipedia. Who are ‘they’?

‘If half of the claims in this article are true, this is indeed an exceptional young man. However, exceptional does not necessarily equal notable. Most claims are unsourced or sourced to the subject’s own websites. Many claims are over the top (for instance, he seems to be a resident at Duke and the article was categorized as ‘Duke faculty’).’

But there’s more in the discussion there, so read on.

Cheers.
