    Thank you for posting this – I found it very moving at the convention. (In a number of directions – I teared up, but I also laughed uproariously.)

    I may have disagreed with Christopher Hitchens on a lot of things, but he’s a huge loss to the community.

    • Kylie Sturgess

      It was certainly a very tragic loss.

    Thanks for posting this. The GAC as a whole was really good.

  • Pierce R. Butler

    Why are there (still) two ads (“tickets on sale now“) for the GAC on this page (and others at FtB)?

    Are the GAC organizers still paying their advertising service for this?

    • Kylie Sturgess

      Hi Peirce,
      Firstly the same happened for the Rock Beyond Reason for about two days after it finished – it takes a little while for updates to happen and the event just finished on Sunday. I’ll forward your issue with the ads and thanks for the feedback.
      By the way, I think the ads in that particular side-bar free as the FTB kindly promotes lots of atheist events. You can always ask.

      • Pierce R. Butler

        Both ads are still there today.

        Glad to hear the attendees’ funds aren’t getting wasted to the gain of some ad agency – but how hard could it be to set up a script to cancel a given promo by day X, right from the start?

    Thanks for posting this Kylie. I agree that watching it at GAC was an extremely emotional experience. I also have to say you were a fantastic emcee. Thanks for your contribution to the best conference/convention I have ever been to.
