In which I get a nice profile piece at Medium for my birthday.
A few months ago, tech/media journalist Simon Owens interviewed me for a profile piece he wanted to write about ACASignups.net...basically, the whole story of how a Michigan website developer somehow became a national data/analysis source for All Things Obamacare. I had a couple of similar stories written about myself and the site by Sarah Kliff of Vox and Miranda Neubauer of TechPresident, but those were both over 3 years ago, in the midst of that insane first Open Enrollment Period, when the site was at peak media attention. I've been cited/quoted quite a bit since then, but most of that has been about the actual data and analysis, which of course makes sense.
Owens' story was published this week, and today just happens to be my birthday, so as a little present to myself, I'm doing a bit of #HumbleBragging by sharing the story link.
The only bummer here is that it's a members only article; you have to join Medium ($5/month) in order to read it. On the other hand, it includes an audio version, which is kind of cool. Anyway, check it out!
