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!


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?
