Proof of Vaccination for SiliCon with Adam Savage #SHORTS

One of the expectations I raised in my video about the forthcoming SiliCon with Adam Savage (8/28-29/2021) was mask wearing (yes) and proof of vaccination (maybe). This week the San Jose City Council voted to require proof of vaccination for city run facilities like the SAP Center, the San Jose Convention Center, and the San Jose Center of Performing Arts. The mandate would not go into effect immediately to give venues time to prepare. No proof of vaccination for SiliCon with Adam Savage. Nearby restaurants may require proof of vaccination for indoor seating. Yes, you still need to wear a mask.

Adam Savage Sexual Abuse Lawsuit Settlement #SHORTS

Adam Savage’s younger sister, Miranda Pacchiana, filed a civil lawsuit against him a year ago. Accusing the former “MythBusters” co-host of sexually abusing her when they were young children. Savage denied the allegations and accused his sister of pursuing “a financial bonanza”.

A sharp-eyed viewer left a comment on my Silicon with Adam Savage video about the lawsuit. According to court records, the lawsuit got settled on May 24, 2021, and dismissed on May 25, 2021.

What does this mean for Silicon with Adam Savage? The organizers don’t have to worry about a scandal taking down their host and the show with him.
