#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.

I defended Dr. Oz on Wikipedia - and you should too. My latest blog:

When patrolling Wikipedia for vandalism, I treat skeptics and pseudoscientists equally. It is a good way to demonstrate lack of bias.

Online tools are great - until they disappear. What to do then? My latest blog:

Online tools sometimes disappear. What should one do when this happens Can you predict or avoid it?

Targeted online ads can be used for skeptical outreach. My latest blog:

Skeptics could learn a trick from Scientology. Targeted ads on Google and Twitter can be very effective - and inexpensive.
