From April 20th to the 22nd, the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard is throwing a big fat conference to celebrate 30 years of nonbelief! If you’re anywhere near New England/the East Coast/the United States/Earth, you should make plans to be there (and let me know!). Salman Rushdie, E.O. Wilson, Steven Pinker, Lori Lipman Brown, and lots of other freethinkers will be in attendance. Plus, a Skepdude calendar model, Bryan Pesta, will be getting special mention for running the largest group of atheists and agnostics on Myspace! It’s only $99 to register for the whole weekend (that includes food, cheapos!), and it’s even less expensive if you’re a student and/or a member of the Secular Student Alliance. Click here to register.
If you want to go but aren’t sure you can swing the cash for a hotel room, please post as such below or email me and perhaps some peeps can share.
I nearly forgot to mention this one for the West Coast skepchick crowd: you simply must go see Jennifer Ouellette give a talk at CalTech as part of the Skeptic lecture series. Jennifer is engaging, funny, intellectually curious, and gorgeous. What more could you ask for? She’ll be discussing the Buffyverse on March 11. Check out Jennifer’s fabulous blog, Cocktail Party Physics!
