My wife and I are here at TAM8, and so far things have been a blast. The Science-Based Medicine Workshops yesterday went quite well, and I’m told that my talk actually wasn’t half-bad. In the meantime, after the serious misstep of Pepsigeddon, which has claimed some of my fellow ScienceBloggers, ScienceBlogs finally did the right thing and got rid of the PepsiCo blog. All is well. Well, not quite, but at least all doesn’t suck the way it did for a couple of days.
In the meantime, there is the Amazing Meeting. I’ve been informed that I actually have fans. I know, I know, it’s really hard to believe. I still have trouble believing it even after five years. Even more odd, these fans want a meetup. Or at least some of them do. So, I’ll tell you what. We’ll try to do something early this evening or tomorrow sometime if sufficient interest is shown. Either come up to me at the meeting, drop me an e-mail, or leave a comment here, and I’ll leave an announcement on my Twitter account (@oracknows) later today. My wife also informs me that she’s interested in meeting skeptical nurses.
Off to the meeting. If there’s wifi (there wasn’t yesterday other than the ridiculously expensive by the hour wifi, but the meeting hadn’t started yet), I may even drop a blog post or two. If not, I’ll actually take the day off. Shocking, I know, but I do do it from time to time.
