See You at Skepticon!
Just a brief announcement: The weekend of November 9, I'll be in Springfield, Missouri for Skepticon 5. Since I had such a blast at Skepticon 4 last year, there's no way I couldn't go back. And though I don't want to reveal any spoilers, there's a distinct possibility that I'm not just going to be in the audience this year. Further updates on that, possibly, as the time draws nearer.
If last year was any guide, there will be ample opportunity over the weekend for carousing and meetups. If you're also planning to attend and would like to be part of one, let me know!
