Yesterday we held our inaugural Northern California Science and Skepticism conference, SkeptiCal.
It was a wonderful success, and we’re all coming down after a long, hard day of skepticism.
I presented a talk about psychics, and I’m relieved that I packed out the room despite the lure of concurrent talks by the charming Seth Shostak and the delightful Chris Hoofnagle. I caught up with lots of skeptical friends, and finally met lots of Facebook ‘friends’!
But the best bit was when a guy approached me and asked, “Are you the girl from that Ghost Hunters show?”
What do you love or loathe about conferences?
What conferences will you/would you attend this year?
Do you have any amusing conference anecdotes you’d like to share?
