Later tonight, I’ll be heading to Skepticon 5, the free/massive/awesome/student-run/skeptic/atheist conference, in Springfield, Missouri.
Last year, I gave a talk about math. This year, the organizers are clearly punishing me by having me follow the incredible science/math writer Jennifer Ouellette. Punks.
Anyway, if you’re unable to be there in person, the Skepticon team has announced they will be live-streaming all the talks!
… Since the internet is full of idea-sharing thought-communists, there will be a free livestream for the event… Be sure to check out the schedule. All we ask is that you join our Free Rice group here so you can feed a body while we feed your mind.
Also, this crap is expensive. You can donate here. Every little bit helps!
<3,The Skepticon TeamP.S. For those of you lucky enough to attend in meatspace, there will be a food drive and a book drive at the event. Bring some nonperishable food and books, so you can show the world that you give a damn.
I tried signing up and it was pretty painless. All it took was an email address. The live-stream begins tonight at 6:00p (EST) and runs for 48 hours.
My talk is at 5:30p (EST) tomorrow. See me then?
