I'm currently at the Museum of Old And New Art's Australian Fair for Freedom of Belief in Religion, where they provide a platform to present a broad spectrum of beliefs and religious views present in contemporary Australian society. Check out the brief glimpse of my much-loved "There's probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life" shirt in this ABC Hobart news report! They were calling it religious speed-dating!

Unicorns And Cake – Recent Events And Links

unicorn

I've been away from social media a little bit (including chasing down emails) because I had a health scare recently and it's difficult to be enthusiastic about the online world when the offline world involves being a pincushion for blood tests and visiting radiotherapy (no knock against radiotherapists, but waiting rooms are scary places, especially when it mostly seems to be mothers and daughters) - naturally, it overshadows everything else.But yesterday I got to visit my niece, who has … [Read more...]

WAHOOO Thanks QEDCon and UK Skeptic Magazine – Win For Ockham’s Video 2013

Quick news - last year I took part in TEDxPerth and a short presentation I did was filmed; it was called Superstition 'Ain't The Way.On Friday morning, I was asked if I had something to either have said or presented via video as a finalist (which I didn't expect, as I didn't see a "finalists" list anywhere apart from a few great folk on Twitter saying that they made it to the finals in their categories). So, I didn't expect to win at such notice.Which is why I made a quick minute-long … [Read more...]

New Token Skeptic Podcast! Catherine Deveny On Atheism And What Trolls Can Do With Themselves

I've recently documented several years of activism - because, clearly, there's only one narrowly defined way to do activism properly that should forgo all things such as communicating in ways that you're good at, or comfortable with, or have the funding, or live in a place where it's easy to do, or even just the time or even mobility to do so...or even avoid raising a family, volunteering for other kinds of charities, talking to interesting people, photography, dance classes, studies in unr … [Read more...]

Apparently It’s Pi / Pie Day In The USA… Updates On Other Podcasting, Travel-Stuff

Movers and Shakers Radio Show Logo

Here is the logo (I made this! I've learned that "hipster" can be code for "I've done five lessons in graphic art!") for the radio show I contribute to. It is kind of pie shaped. You're welcome.Over here it's just March 14th. Or as we have it in our dating system, 14/03/2014.It's very, very confusing to see the US date system and risk screwing things up by thinking it's day/month/year when it's MONTH/day/year over there. At least, it has been whenever I've travelled and hesitated over … [Read more...]
