Atlanta Skepticamp this Weekend!

Attention my fellow Atlantans (and others in the vicinity)!  The Atlanta Skeptics are putting together our first ever Skepticamp this weekend!  What is a Skepticamp, you ask? Modelled after BarCamp and started in Colorado, Skepticamp is an ‘un-conference’ – a gathering where the content is provided by the participants.  Each participant gives a talk, leads a discussion or volunteers in some way.  We’ve been extremely lucky to have support from various skeptical organizations and a really amazing response. So much so that we had to extend the event from one day to two.  I hope you can join us!

And if you’re not in the Atlanta area, make sure you’ll check to see if there are other Skepticamps planned in your area – there are plans underway for events in Arizona, Ohio, New York, Washington, Colorado and British Columbia!

    If there were one near by,


  2. @Rodney – we eagerly await a talk covering the extraordinary claims made by certain schools/styles of karate. No word yet on a SoCal Skepticamp that I’ve heard.
