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. Either way, Skeptech 2: Electric Boogaloo is going to be ridiculously fun! We’ll be releasing a number of speakers every day for the next four days, starting TODAY. Without further delay, our first two speaker releases:
Debbie Goddard is the director of African Americans for Humanism, a program of the Council for Secular Humanism, and the director of Outreach at the Center for Inquiry–Transnational in Amherst, NY. Before working for CFI, she participated in local freethought groups in the greater Philadelphia region and helped organize and support campus groups internationally as a student volunteer. She has also been involved with progressive issues and LGBT activism.
Tim Farley is the creator of the website What’s The Harm?, a resource where stories are documented and categorized about the damage done when people fail to use critical thinking skills. Farley was also instrumental in the apprehension of spammer “David Mabus“. He is a Research Fellow with the James Randi Educational Foundation. Additionally, he blogs at http://skeptools.com.
From Tim: “Technology in skepticism is my specialty, so I knew I had to be involved in Skeptech in 2013. The organizers did such a fantastic job with it, you’d have to bar the door to keep me away from the 2014 edition! I’m sure it will be a blast.”
