Off to TAM

I am leaving today for Vegas for The Amazing Meeting 2013. I may have time for a short post or two this week, but probably not.

I will be giving a Science-Based Medicine workshop on Thursday 2:30-4:00, along with Harriet Hall, David Gorski, and Mark Crislip. This will be an SBM primer.  We are also doing a panel, with Robert Blaskiewicz, on fighting medical fraud, on Saturday 2:40-3:30.

On Friday 2:45-3:45 I will be on a panel discussing the scope and mission of the skeptical movement. This will be partly based on some of my previous blog posts here.

Friday night will be the SGU dinner, from 6-9. This is a separate event you have to register for – there are still spots and you can register at the event. In addition to schmoozing with the Rogues, we will be doing our usual auction, which includes a guest rogue slot. This year we will also be doing a skeptical quiz show, with the audience member who wins receiving the TAM VIP package for 2014 (worth $1,000).  The SGU dinner is always a highlight of the event.

And of course, on Saturday from 11:45-12:45 we will be doing a live SGU podcast.

If you attend be sure to stop by the SGU table and introduce yourself. We will post some scheduled times when all the Rogues will be there. Hope to see some of you there.

    ” all the Rogues will be there”. Not to open old wounds but is that including Rebecca is the TAM boycott over?

    Rebecca will not be at TAM this year. The rest of us will be there.

    There will also be at least one recent (2013) past Guest Rogue at TAM this year. :)

    Have fun storming the castle!

    Also, enjoy the Grand Canyon. We went to the further away and not as visited North Rim years ago. We stayed in one of the cabins nestled in the woods. Since I had made dinner reservations our family of five was seated by the corner window right on the edge of the cliff both evenings. It was spectacular!

    Even the drive there was awesome. We started off in Flagstaff, drove through desert, over a river and then encountered the Vermillion Cliffs. After driving up those we encountered a green forested plateau. It was like entering a different world. And then we got to the parking lot, walked out of the car and there was the canyon spread out in front of us, with the river a long long way below.
