Hi all – just a driveby post which I’ll repost at TSZ/ATBC (whichever one you’re not reading right now). I’m currently attending the ConspiraSea Cruise, which I know is of interest to the regulars. I’m submitting updates as I write them to my wife, who’s kindly formatting them and putting them up on her blog, Violent Metaphors. The first one’s up now and more will be coming later in the week. No creationism action but plenty of anti-vaxers and GMO fearmongering and legal mumbo-jumbo.
Sorry for the literally copy-and-pasted comment; internet is not cheap at sea. Which is annoying, but on the other hand, I have internet at sea, which is borderline miraculous. A miracle I’m parceling out precious minutes at a time, logging on to reload pages and drop prewritten comments/emails.
Anyway, we’d be delighted if you’d stop by Violent Metaphors to take a look and drop a comment—especially positive ones. Not for the sake of my ravening ego, but because I’m sure people from the cruise are reading (although not many and not often, given the data rates) and it’d be nice to show more positive, friendly engagement from the skeptic community. After all, the attendees are decent human beings. Some of the speakers make my hair stand up a bit, but more on that at VM when I’ve had a chance to write it up.
