    Hey, I made it on this video. I’m the woohoo at the very end. Also I can hear my camera clicking there at the end too. A cameo appearance!

    Just took some of Tim’s quotes and linked the video to his Wikipedia page. There is my 5 minutes of work done crowd-sourcing today.


    Remember anyone is welcome re-write the blurb I left to make it more readable, I would actually be pleased.

  3. This was one of my favorite TAM presentations! I’m glad the video is out so I can use it to recruit even more help.

    I was one of the people in the audience for this talk, and I remember when you said, “But Tim, I’m not a webmaster or I’m not a software developer, I don’t have the skills necessary to do those things!” my husband and I looked at each other, because I *am* a web developer and he’s a software developer, and it sounds like somebody somewhere might need our skills. Where are some places we can go to help out?

      You know, I hadn’t thought about it before, but perhaps creating some sort of “skeptic service bureau” to connect folks with different skills to work on projects together might be a useful service…
