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

(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.)
