1.) It’s about time I started advertising for:
The Amaz!ng Meeting 5.5
…happening January 25-27, 2008 in Fort Lauderdale, at the headquarters of the James Randi Educational Foundation!
(Rebecca Watson, as if you didn’t know)
(The Pulling Report)
(9/11 conspiracy expert)
(advocate for parents of missing children preyed upon by psychics)
If you’ve been following along with reports from previous TAMs and the recent Amaz!ng Cruise to Alaska, watching from the sidelines and full of jealous rage, now’s your chance to get in on the fun. Not only will there be plenty of info on how to get actively involved in the promotion of science and skepticism, but there will also be a ton of wonderful skeptics in one place to hang out with all weekend long. Plus, you get to meet James Randi! It’s going to be a blast, I promise.
Sign up here and tell them you’re coming because of me. For every registrant I get, host Hal Bidlack has to cut another pun out of his patter.*
2.) On Monday, I’ll need you all to head on over to the Public Radio Talent Quest and vote for me in the final round! I just thought you’d like some fair warning.
3.) Oh yeah! I’ll also be a bit visible this weekend in the following ways:
- I should be on Weekend America tomorrow, as they’ll be promoting the Talent Quest. I recorded a 60-second clip, that I hope they’ll play in full for your enjoyment. If they put it online, I’ll post a link next week. Check your local NPR station for air times!
- I should also be in the Boston Globe Magazine this Sunday, in an article about Humanism. This should be very interesting — I have no idea what made it in, but I get the feeling I may not be pleased. I’ll report back next week on that.
*If you don’t get the joke, that’s because you’ve yet to experience Hal’s awful, awful jokes at a TAM. Register for 5.5 today to get in on all the inside jokes!
