Pythagoran Crank

I am a skeptically-minded pro-justice vegan. Here is a time line of some formative events:

  • 1999: “went vegan” in protest of violence to others.
  • 2000: Volunteered for the Chicago chapter of vegan advocacy and environmental org Earthsave. Later became Chairperson.
  • 2001: Became a rawfoodist for about a year.
  • 2002: Founded the local vegan meetup which would become one of the largest vegan groups, Vegan Chicago.
  • 2003: Started an online message board called Vegan Represent which was one of the largest such communities of it’s time.
  • 2006: Discovered skepticism and critical thinking.
  • 2008: Rebranded Vegan Represent as Plant-based People.
  • 2011: Started a vegan biotech advocacy group called Vegan GMO in response to anti-GMO victimization of vegans.
  • 2015: Collaborated to create March Against Myths (MAMyths) in response to pseudoscience victimizing everybody at large.
  • 2018: Blundered into science, technology and society

Along the way I was involved in several other vegan groups and projects. Paid a lot of vegan dues, talked with a shit ton of vegans. My views are ever-changing and archived here within this blog. Context: I’m a cisgender, heterosexual, white-presenting male. Pronouns: he, him, they. Language: English. Location: occupied lands of the native Potawatomi people colonized as Chicago Illinois USA.
