I wonder how we got to this point, where any public institution not achieving immediate perfection is deemed a failure. Is it just an extension of the old news saying that “if it bleeds, it leads”- that we love reading about things going horribly wrong? wired.com/story/there-sh…

Important piece by @BenMazer on our vaccine rollout. "...medical and scientific advances are so easily described in superlatives—miracles, breakthroughs, game changers—but their real-world implementation often ends up seeming like a catastrophe." wired.com/story/there-sh…

Vaccine distribution has been going badly, it's true -- but we can only expect so much. A call for logistical forbearance from @BenMazer wired.com/story/there-sh…

How we talk about our institutions defines them. Whether they seem trustworthy or dishonest, efficient or sluggish, powerful or impotent has as much to do with the public narrative as their actual results. wired.com/story/there-sh…

With everything going on right now about well everything. Please take a minute and read this @BenMazer piece. Extremely timely and well written. Stop all the finger-pointing nonsense and get shots in arms and get one step closer to a really big party. wired.com/story/there-sh…

As a laboratory medicine specialist, I’ve gotten a preview of what vaccine administrators will endure. Every day I open up the news to read about all of the ways Covid testing is falling short. wired.com/story/there-sh…

In light of the same people complaining that we are not administering shots fast enough now complaining that medical centers may not be perfectly prioritizing shots...have I got an op-ed for you. The next battle will be teachers vs older people. wired.com/story/there-sh… pic.twitter.com/zfi8bDBaCK

What would the public discourse look like if we treated our institutions with the same mercy with which we treat each other? wired.com/story/there-sh…

Well said ⁦@BenMazer⁩ “So let’s instead make 2021 a year of reasonable expectations. ...... here’s where we might start: by valuing transparency over perfection, improvement over denial, iteration over omnipotence, and access over perfect equity” wired.com/story/there-sh…
