The latest on Ran Boytner, former executive director of the Institute for Field Research



For those who have followed the events of the past year or two concerning the Institute for Field Research and its former director, a colleague writes with the following information. For those not up to speed on this, please search "Boytner" on this blog; for legal reasons I am limited in how much linking to past posts I can and want to do. I have slightly edited the following to keep it factual without commentary.



"The website of Twin Cairns, Ran Boytner’s new company, is up and running:
https://twincairns.com/

Boytner’s record at UCLA and IFR is probably why his name is nowhere to be found on the website. (For details see previous posts on this blog.) The investors would doubtless want to keep it this way.

Except that Twin Cairns is managed by Anthropocene Trust:

Looks like he is using images from this 2019 IFR field school

Can’t find it now, but someone commented a while ago that he’s using IFR photos also on his other websites. I betya that despite everything that happened they are all still in cahoots.
