I’ve Made It! (Plugs, Links, Etc.)

Well, it’s finally happened: I’ve made the big time.

Me in OvercompensatingMonday night’s Boston Skeptics in the Pub featured Jeffrey Rowland and Jon Rosenberg talking about webcomics, science, skepticism, and how to make a living giving stuff away for free. There was a lively Q&A followed by livelier drinking time followed by the sun coming up and me suddenly realizing I had to go back to work because it was now Tuesday.

These events are captured in today’s Overcompensating, and hooray Jeffrey made me into a cartoon! I hope I make it into future comics, and if so then I hope my character is kicking the crap out of some con artist like John Edward or something.

While I’m at it, here are a few more links that I wanted to plug:

Boston Skeptics in the Pub regular Sarah Trachtenberg let me know she’s running a Christian Kitsch contest! Send her your best/worst novelty item. You only have til May 7!

When I was in New York last week, I met a cool chick who runs a slightly explicit site called SmartAxe, which features naughty sciencey stuff like how to do the nasty in space. Cool! Go visit and have fun.

That’s it for now I think, though I know I’m missing a ton of stuff as I’m still catching up and trying to post more. Two days in a row, yay!

  1. As I pointed out on Twitter, the background of that panel makes me sad, because it reminds me of how awesome Greenhouse was and how fantastically douchey-looking its replacement is. Sigh.

  2. @phlebas: Mabuse has been a regular in my in-box for the past two years or so. He’s been particularly nasty this week . . .

    @Joshua: Yeah, I noticed the Greenhouse but felt less sadness, since I actually never really had a decent meal there and the new place is run by the same guys who do Cambridge 1, Audubon, etc.

  3. I liked Greenhouse because they had good Reubens. I can see why you might not find this a compelling reason to lament its non-existence.

    I can’t get over how incredibly douchey Tory Row looks, though. I feel like they won’t let me in unless I pop my collar.

    Now, all I need is a ticket to space.
