I’m sitting here at the Secular Student Alliance’s Eastern conference having a blast. I gave a talk this morning on blogging that was well-attended and a lot of fun.
Anyway, also in attendance are John Mueller and Kathy Goodman. In 2009 they published a study in the Chronicle of Higher Education titled Atheist Students on Campus: From Misconceptions to Inclusion. Their work was instrumental to my own work and success as the SSA’s first high school organizer. There was scarcely anything I did that did not integrate their work. In short, I think they’re both brilliant and I very, very, very much admire them.
I wound up shooting the shit with them for a bit, during which time Dr. Mueller divulged that he reads my blog on a daily basis. Talk about one of the best compliments I could receive…
