The Young Australian Skeptics blog is relaunching with a diverse team of young writers, aiming to inject fresh perspectives and opinions into the online skeptical and science communication communities. The blog – youngausskeptics.com – will be relaunched on the 1st of January, 2013, at 12pm, Melbourne time, with a beautiful new design and a bunch of thought-provoking articles.
…The new writing team is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students with diverse backgrounds in astronomy, genetics, psychology, zoology, science communication, experimental physics, molecular biology, law, mathematics, medicine, history, philosophy and more; enthusiastic high school students, including one from one of Australia’s pioneering skeptical high school groups; and young professionals and creatives working in the media, marketing and design. The blog also plans on publishing articles from guest writers, especially other young skeptics from Australia and all over the world.
…Beginning in 2008, the The Young Australian Skeptics has been a prominent part of online skepticism in Australia, with ties to the Australian Skeptics, the Victorian Skeptics and the well-known pro-vaccination group Stop the Australian Vaccination Network. It produces The Pseudoscientists, its official podcast, and has published the Skeptical Blog Anthology, a collection of outstanding online skeptical writing.With this blog relaunch, the group intends to extend its reach to a wider audience of both skeptics and laypeople of all ages and nationalities, and provide a place where young freethinkers and science enthusiasts are championed and can freely communicate and express their opinions.
