What will I say to physicians in September?

Mar 09

I will not give the whole talk away but in September I have been invited to Framtidens Specialistläkare a conference for Swedish physicians in Malmö, to talk about “hidden ignorance”. The conference lasts for a few days (7th – 9th of September) and I am there as part of the Uppsala University “team”. My presentation will be based on the lectures I usually do but with an angle toward medicine. Now I don’t know anything about medicine but since I know a little about how easy it is for people to be fooled or fool themselves I can talk about that in relation to medicine and perhaps even more appropriately in regard to so called alternative medicine. If you want to learn more about the conference here is a link to the website (in Swedish). If you want to learn more about the Uppsala University part of the program here is a link to the program (also in...

The summer of 2014 I performed in Gävle at the Steampunk festival. Now one of the guests of honour have written about the festival and even if I am just mentioned and show up in a picture my show is apparently remembered almost two years later....

As most people know being in entertainment (or education) means that you work private events for individuals, corporations, or institutions. So this is a rare opportunity to see me live. I have been booked by Magic Bar in Stockholm for three evenings the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd of Mars 2016. I think that the information will soon be on their web-page and I will then link to...

Course: Good and Bad Science

Course: Good and Bad Science

Oct 28

I am very happy to finaly reveal my participation in what in my opinion is the most exciting course at Uppsala University in 2016. Three professors from different faculties at the university and I, have put together a course focusing on understanding science in a very broad sense. Besides planning the course my participation includes giving one workshop and one lecture. There are many different aspects to doing science, one of the basic ones is ”don’t get fooled”. Indeed one can say that this is what most researchers try to avoid, and the fooling part is of course my area of expertise. I am really looking forward to this course that will premier this spring and hopefully be a recurring course offered by the university. The course web-page (in...

I just had a quite interesting performance, that I can’t say very much about hence the title above. The impression I got was that it was quite well received, and I should know since I’m a mentalist. It was a pro bono gig, but I still got a lot out of it since I met nice people and had a good time. Now I am at a burger place in Stockholm waiting to get home to Uppsala and since it is almost four o’clock in the morning I am quite sure that I am the only one in here updating my blog and reading up on theoretical physicist Ulf Danielsson’s reports from the resent conference on Hawking radiation, of course with Stephen Hawking himself as guest. The reports are in Swedish and aimed at a lay...
