William M. Briggs
William M. Briggs is a writer, philosopher, and itinerant scientist living on a small but densely populated island in the Atlantic Ocean. He earned his PhD from Cornell University in statistics, where he is an adjunct professor. He studies the philosophy of science, the use and misuses of uncertainty, the corruption of science, and the uselessness of most predictions. He began life as a cryptologist for the Air Force, slipped into weather and climate forecasting, and matured into an epistemologist. He maintains a lively blog at http://wmbriggs.com and tweets at @mattstat.
Ars Technica sent a writer to a recent climate-change conference in DC. Not that the science affected his mind at all.
