Please Don’t Start Another Blog or Podcast!

Update June 29: Now with video.

My presentation at SkeptiCamp Atlanta 2011 this past weekend was titled “Please Don’t Start Another Blog or Podcast!” I chose that title deliberately to to be a little controversial, of course. It verges on ridiculous for someone who both blogs and podcasts to tell others not to do either.

My real point is to highlight the many other online activities skeptics can engage in that are important and make a difference. Regular readers of this blog (all three of you) will find some familiar topics in this. See below for links to the slides, an audio version and other supplemental information.

The video includes some introductory material from SkeptiCamp, the main presentation starts at 6:26. If you prefer to listen on the go, you can hear the audio for this presentation on the Skepticality podcast #158 “Return to Lake Skepticamp.” The audio of the presentation itself starts at about 20 minutes in to the episode. You will hear in both the video and audio that I originally miscounted my subtopics, I say seven and the audience corrects me. This has been corrected in the slides seen after the break.

Continue reading after the break for my slides and a list of links that to more information (mostly prior posts on this blog) that expand on each of the topics I cover in the presentation.

TAM6 Video: Building Internet Tools for Skeptics

This blog started in 2008 based on a talk that I gave at The Amaz!ng Meeting #6 in Las Vegas. The James Randi Educational Foundation has now posted the official video of my talk online, here it is:

An expanded “blogified” version of this presentation, with clickable screen shots is also available. You might want to open that in another window while you watch this.

This talk was part of the Paper Presentations given on Sunday at each TAM. Anyone can submit a proposal for one. Seeing some ordinary skeptics give presentations at TAM5 as part of this is what sparked my interest in getting involved in skepticism. If you have an idea for a presentation like this, submit a proposal for one to JREF. The deadline is May 15.

The Amazing Meeting 9 is less than 90 days away: July 14-17, 2011 in Las Vegas.
