#9 – Best. Evening. Ever.

Last night was incredible. Not only did I have a great experience chatting with Desiree (@teh_skeptic) briefly on Skeptically Speaking (@SkepticalRadio), there was a great turnout of interesting, intelligent, and fun people to the video chat. Tokbox managed to cooperate (mostly) so we had some interesting discussion and plenty of fun.

A special thanks to Desiree and the Skeptically Speaking crew for allowing me the opportunity, for working so hard on something as cool as their show, and for just being all-round good people.

This Week’s Discussion Topics

Thank you to all of this week’s attendees:

Brian Gregory (@briandgregory), Cary Collett (@qaphsiel), Luis Vidal (@NeuroPunk), Sarah Ann (@xtexasbelle), Jareth Arnold (@maeamian), Terry Shull (@TerilynnS), Mary Spiro (@Mary_Spiro), Citizen Gold (@unifex), Manuel Santamaria (@MrSantamaria), K.O. Myers (@GRSkeptics), Derek Bartholomaus (@derekcbart)


There will be no meeting next week [US Thanksgiving] because many of us (including myself) will be doing our best not to think of anything but eating and hanging out with family. The next meeting will be Wednesday Dec 2nd at 9pm EST, so mark your calendars, tell your friends, and come ready to chat, meet, and have some fun.

    I was so happy to participate in last night’s chat, even if my sinus issue took me down early. I loved the topics and hearing more about what’s being done ALL OVER THE WORLD in skeptic groups, etc. I am very sorry I missed the Christchurch Casino thing though, I would have enjoyed that. I would love to hear more about the results of the $50k challenge and maybe someone could talk about what we can do in social media to help people understand what skepticism is.

      It was certainly good to see you as well. The results of the challenge (including video highlights) will be available, most likely on the IIG website. Since Derek is directly involved, he will probably tweet about it when it is available.

      I love your topic idea, it would be an interesting discussion. Perhaps we can find certain individuals within the community that could come speak at the group? (We might already have someone interesting coming to the Dec 2nd meet – wink wink)

    I’ve wanted to come for some time but it just hasn’t worked out (due to family commitments mostly).

      Understood. We’ll be here, so whenever you have the chance just drop in.

    I had a great time, despite having to bail early. Virtual DS is a great idea Brian, and I hope you keep it up. And I’m not going to let you forget that you promised me a guest blog post for Grassroots Skeptics. =)

      Thanks and thanks. Yes, I didn’t forget either. 🙂
