#Skeptics Go to the link below. If you see a color graphic up top with the word "FORMED", inside a box - then please click "FEEDBACK" below it and tell Google what you think about them promoting creationism this way. (There's nothing wrong with Ken Ham's site appearing in Google, but it shouldn't be endorsed by Google like this). http://bit.ly/1Qkd3ng

Let me add that good skeptics need to be skeptical about Internet usage and other things. Use something like Ixquick or DuckDuckGo for your searches, one that doesn't retain your ad history and doesn't have paid promotional rankings. +Tim Farley given your IT background, I respectfully suggest a good blog post about this.

#ATL come celebrate +Skepticality Podcast's 10th anniversary tomorrow at Manuels Tavern. How many other podcasts do you know that have been around for a full decade? http://bit.ly/1GTPsos
Come help Derek and Swoopy celebrate 10 years of critical thinking and science at a live recording of the Skepticality podcast. Yes, it truly has been 10 years since Derek and Swoopy helped kick off the entire skeptical podcasting scene (they even beat that 'other' podcast to the punch). So come to Manuel's and see the creative process in action as they do a very special live recording.

When you patrol Wikipedia for vandalism - be thorough! Here's how:

When cleaning up bad edits on Wikipedia, remember that vandalism is often done in sprees.
