Skepticon 5 Will Be Live-Streamed for Free Online

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 Team

P.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?

    What’s with the nasty looking avatar I see when I go to that page? Not exactly the best for outreach.

    I was signed up, but then found out that I couldn’t make it and I was so bummed.  This is great news!
