  • Nice (but far to short) editorial writeup featuring our great friend Conrad Karl and Uma's -

    Here's an excerpt:

    Midway through the hurricane season, an interesting breed of aquatic New Yorkers — surfers — are religiously scrolling apps for the most promising waves. They could not resist dropping by Rockaway Beach this week to ride the remnants of Hurricane Edouard pounding the Atlantic beachfront of Queens. “We’re rooting for Edouard — up to a point,” said Conrad Karl, an obsessive surfer who is happy to frolic at a hurricane’s farther edges.

  • He's quoted 4 times. No evidence of bragging how good he was at all:

    "We’re rooting for Edouard — up to a point" 

    "It’s love of the ocean and surfing that has us here"

    "We call it surfonomics — one thing leads to another"

    "They’re here for the swell"
    Not to be absolutely certain is, I think, one of the essential things in rationality. - Bertrand Russell

  • This is how I imagine the think tank at the NY Times at least once a month:


    - "Ok guys, let's think of a news story that has never been done, something that will really be ground breaking and thought provoking!"
    - "How about we cover Rockaway Beach, pepper in something about hipsters, the A train and how there's surfing in NYC!"
    - "Perfect! Let's put something in there about the hurricane and we got ourselves a story!"  ::)
