Things have been a bit hectic over here at Skepchick HQ. We just finished up SkepchickCON at CONvergence and it was a HUGE success. Special guests, PZ Myers of Pharyngula, Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon and Sadie Crabtree of the JREF helped us to pack the rooms and helped to make this the best event we have organized yet. Thanks guys!
Also, the Skepchick party was fantastic! Newly appointed director of Skepchick organization (I may have invented that title but it’s true) and all around kick-ass gal, Kammy helped us throw the best three-nights-in-row-party ever! Thanks to all the volunteers, new friends and old who stopped by our party and our track rooms. It was awesome.
We have also been trapped in the midst of what has been described as Elevatorgate.
And in a week we are hopping planes and trains to what is surely going to be the best and busiest TAM ever!
We are frantically finishing up preparations for a free TDaP vaccine clinic. We are wrapping up a literal ass-load of Surly-Ramics and Skepchick buttons and shirts to have at our tables. Rebecca is putting the finishing touches on plans for her variety show and almost every Skepchick in attendance is preparing for at least one panel or workshop.
We are busy bees. We might be lacking sleep. We are definitely very excited.
So in honor of all the kicking-ass AND in honor of the launching of our AWESOME NEW sister site in spanish I thought I would lighten things up with an sweet and simple Afternoon Inquisition.
Tell me dear Skepchick readers, what is something that has made your life better via learning about science, critical thinking or skepticism? In what ways can you envision feminism, critical thinking or skepticism improving the world in the future? Why should we keep up all this hard work? Give us a little sugar.
*Bonus question: Are you going to be at TAM this year or any other events and if so will you please come say hello to me?
