My Time At FreeThought Blogs – October 1st, 2011 To Now #FTBullies

Here’s a tally of some of the things I did over this time:

Presented at:

  • The World Skeptics Congress, Berlin
  • MC of the Global Atheist Convention
  • ScienceRewired

a few future gigs, such as a talk at UWA later this week on science podcasting. 


(With a TREMENDOUS amount of help; thanks to all involved, for both publications)

Articles in Print:


Web-published (JREF website and CSI column Curiouser and Curiouser):

JREF Swift:

CSI Curiouser and Curiouser:

There’s more to come, appearing this week.


Charity Fundraising / Awareness-Raising (also ongoing):

Plus a number of references to secular charities around Christmas time, Kiva fundraising, etc. THANK YOU to everyone who took part in helping these groups out.


Podcasts Produced During This Time (70+, if you don’t want to bother counting):

I can’t be bothered counting the blog-posts – kind of the same way many can’t be bothered reading them. I’ll keep working, keep fundraising, keep producing content and writing, and if you’re very fortunate, you might see me at an event. Where I’ll be working, as I always do.

This is Token Skeptic, and I’m Kylie Sturgess.

    Thanks Kylie for all of this. (What a shame this comment probably won’t work.)

    • Kylie Sturgess

      It worked! Thank you!

      There’s a few people who will never have their comments go through and I suggest they go buy: That’s all I have to say to them.

      • Xanthë, chronic tuck

        I’m as surprised as you are (and here I am tempting fate again). So if this works, I might even comment more often! I’d almost given up leaving comments based on past failures; I think the most recent times were quick replies on the Russian meteor thread (given that you were about the first person on FTB to post it) and your announcement of the 365 Days of Philosophy blog earlier in the year. As for the choice of book: if only those people would take note of it – but they probably won’t.
        Greetings from the Far East, anyway!

    That’s a great output Kylie. If only some of FTB’s haters put out even half that work.

    • Kylie Sturgess

      I can’t comment – it’s not true that other people don’t work hard, even if they hate FTB.

      • Rob

        Point taken. But then I did say some not all. :-)

  • hjhornbeck

    I appear to be missing some context. No matter, as that’s an impressive output! Not many people in the skeptic community are as active as you. Keep it up!

    • Kylie Sturgess

      Meh, just bored with the ‘all you people do is blog’ bullshit, particularly aimed at some of the newer members of FTB. Sure, not everyone will like everyone. But blanket statements when it can be easily and empirically shown that it’s just not true is foolishness.

        Phew! Sounded like we were losing another one…
