A First: My Numbers Cameo In GO Magazine

A few times over the years, I’ve pitched airline magazines with story ideas. Alas, none of those overtures have, um, gotten off the ground.

But I recently had the good fortune of being quoted in GO Magazine, AirTran Airways’ inflight magazine.

Some of my observations about numbers, and their interplay with we humans, formed the basis for a sidebar (“Prime Numbers”) that freelance journalist Geoff Williams wrote, accompanying his engaging main piece, “The Importance of Numbers: 5 Reasons You Will Read This Article.”

To read the entire package, you can find the main story and sidebar in GO Magazine’s online archives.

To see the sidebar as it appeared in print, click on the image that runs alongside this post.

For a sample of my numeracy writing, under my “Go Figure: Making Numbers Count” training program for journalists and other professionals, you can read this piece on the Inside Edge PR website’s Resources page.

(Special thanks to Brooke Porter, GO Magazine’s managing editor, for graciously providing me with the copy of the article and granting permission for me to blog about it.)
