    We are working away at video editing and transcription of the panels, workshops, and demos that were part of SkepchickCon, the science and skepticism track of CONvergence, held over this past July 4th weekend. I’ll post them as we finish them. The Evolutionary Psychology panel has apparently already been generating some discussion, based not on the content of the panel…
