Skeptech has panels!

skeptech2-security

Unfortunately, we don’t have solar panels to power our conference yet. But our panelists are pretty bright… Skeptech’s panels are not just time-filler – they are sharp, interesting, occasionally divisive, sometimes rowdy discussions between our speakers, community members, and students. Don’t miss them. Check out the titles and topics at the bottom of this page.

Welcome to Skeptech Speaker Week!

Welcome to Skeptech Speaker Week! We were recently informed that conferences typically have speakers. We were flabbergasted! … Just kidding. We have the most rockin’ lineup of speakers we’ve ever had. Some of that’s because Chelsea, our co-head, is a very convincing person, and some of that’s due to straight up cash money.
