In December '20 and March '21, two INTP members have ascended to the ivory halls of permanent academia. For better and for worse, the general confusion surrounding human-virus interactions has prevented the wider world from taking full notice.

Still, we hope that it is with pride and modesty that Jean-François Arnoldi (CNRS) and Matthieu Barbier (CIRAD) will be welcomed by their newfound institutional homes. May they perambulate sagely in their crystal minarets, draped in resplendent white togas, while contemplating the parsimonious use of public money.

Thankfully, they also remain thoroughly devoted to the cause of the INTP, and so you will still see either of them here, occasionally writing news about themselves in the third person.
