About JT Eberhard

When not defending the planet from inevitable apocalypse at the rotting hands of the undead, JT is a writer and public speaker about atheism, gay rights, and more. He spent two and a half years with the Secular Student Alliance as their first high school organizer. During that time he built the SSA’s high school program and oversaw the development of groups nationwide. JT is also the co-founder of the popular Skepticon conference and served as the events lead organizer during its first three years.

    I don’t make New Years Resolutions. No particular reason, I just don’t. Only 4 hours of reading/week? That doesn’t seem like much. Then again, when I’m not on the comp, I’m a bookworm.

    I wish I could dedicate time to books outside of class and work, but I think I’ll be studying French every day to keep up (I know you’re happy about that one, JT).

    I think my resolution will be to run at least twice a week. Yeah, I like it :]

    My resolutions:

    1) Learn more about borderline personality disorder to help someone close to me cope with life.
    2) Obtain my CCNA certification and write at least one exam towards my MCSA.
    3) Brew beer at least 20 times this year.
    4) Craft good clone recipes of Hoegaarden, Duvel, and Hobgoblin.
    5) Finish reading a book. (preferably Stephen Hawking’s Brief History Of Time, so that John Safran will stop mocking me)

  • Ubi Dubium

    1. Make the Totoro hats that I promised my girls before it gets too warm for them to wear them.

    2. Get good enough at our new DDR that I can go up to difficult level without feeling like a total klutz.

    3. Finish creating the powerpoint slides for the “placebo” and “sunk cost” sessions of the “Brain Glitches” class I’m writing.

    4. Find a good way to persuade JT that he doesn’t need to trim down to 9% body fat because he’s fine the way he is.

    Change that fucking insance picture, JT!

    1) Try to be more open with people and try to become closer to them. I distance myself way too much and it’s really starting to affect me emotionally. Been getting better with a friend’s help though.

    2) Play my guitar more often and learn some scales. I love playing and I love guitar music, but I don’t play enough.

    3) Actually study more for school and maybe find something besides computing that I’m interested in.

  • Steven Olsen

    I think I will adopt #2 as well.

    Jeez, I was thinking 3 hours a day. But then, I have nothing better to do. XD
