Re: Confirmation Bias, is there a way through it?

Thanks Gentlemen, it’s nice to be able to build on what I think is rationale thinking with fair feedback and without the constant kickback. And to your point biopearl, the negative “opinion” is rarely presented on this board, which helps me maintain a level of sanity and gratitude for the platform y...

Re: Confirmation Bias, is there a way through it?

Part 2: There is the fact that what happened between the JNJ/Janssen and Geron breakup has not been adequately explained and JS has been unwilling to take investors questions or talk about it. There seemed to be actions being taken that misled many of us. While this behavior begets trust issues, I d...

Confirmation Bias, is there a way through it?

Part 1: Just what is confirmation bias (CB)? Many definitions exist for CB but most reflect the following: A CB is when a person selectively seeks out information that supports a belief or idea that they already have, thus 'confirming' their existing beliefs. CB is the propensity to collect proof th...

Re: Far from a straight line but still on course

I would certainly concur that believing in the drug and thinking outside the box to accelerate the process to commercialization and finding ways to cost effectiv...

Re: Far from a straight line but still on course

Well I agree that we are and should be alert to all things management and stewardship related with JS, his BoD as well as the team being assembled. Most of us are concerned with the deafening silence about the 9-27-18 breakup, and more deafening silence regarding the momentous Dr. Tefferi days and p...

Far from a straight line but still on course

While we don’t know all the details or even some of the most critical material facts, I think most agreed the JS scenario for success via the JNJ/Janssen CLA was likely the best path forward based on events and knowledge at the time in 2014. And on many levels it was confirmation that we had somethi...

Re: Random musings on things I don’t understand

Maybe I should be, but I’m not alarmed on why there are only 7 still in treatment in the MF CT. While yes, I don’t believe there is much room for compassion in CTs, it does seem to me it was probably arbitrary, given the strict nature of CTs and the FDA’s regulations/guidelines, etc. Possibly the pr...

Re: Brainstorm thread for activist role

One common thought if we want to be involved in activist activities, is to focus on appealing to significant stakeholders outside of Geron. Kmail’s dialogue with the FDA is an example. We know there are many avenues in addition to the FDA/EUA including respectable medical media and media outlets in ...

FDA response to Kmail (YMB) and biopearl’s related post

While redundant for those of us who follow some of the GERN YMB posts, I felt these two posts were of great interest to all those following the progress and activities around efforts to commercialize Imetelstat. There were also several interesting and useful replys to both post and if you access the...

Re: Letter to Dr. Scarlett

First, I certainly believe that JS/Geron/IR are underestimating, probably intentionally, the percentage of the 60K investors in the stock that have those very same questions. SA alone has over 30K following Geron related articles/newsreleases/conference calls/comments etc. so while not all will agre...
