This weekend is the first FTBConscience, which as far as I know is the first conference for the atheist community held entirely online. And for those who want to attend, the schedule is finally posted. There are a few additional panels still being worked out that will be added to it, so keep an eye on it to find discussions you’re interested in. You’ll notice that I’m moderating one of the first discussions at 9 pm EST on Friday night. It’s about critical thinking and will feature Jeremy Beahan, Julia Galef and Dan Fincke. The whole thing happens on Google Hangouts and Youtube and I’ll be posting a link to the viewable video and letting you know how you can ask questions for the Q&A when we get it going Friday night. It all kicks off with an opening talk by David Silverman at 5 pm.

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.
