Skepticator Live is taking place in just over a week. If you're attending and want to speak, this thread is where you register your interest.
Simply leave a comment below with
- Your name
- A very brief bio
- The chosen subject for your 5-minute talk
- Preference for a time of the evening you'd like to go on stage
Don't comment here unless you're registering to speak. I'll delete any comments that aren't registrations because this will form my master list for the evening
In formal pre-registration we currently have Chrys Stevenson speaking on Australia as a Christian Nation, me speaking on counting in 8-bit binary, and Dave The Happy Singer and I are doing at least one song. I have reserve talks if everyone is shy, but the idea is to get grassroots skeptics talking, so register your interest now.
Yes, I will be taking registrations on the night. No you don't have to speak. Yes, there is an optional 5-minute Q&A. No, you can't go over unless you're super fantastically awesome. Yes, you can do a song, but pre-arrange any weird instrumental needs with me. Yes, you can read something pre-prepped. No, you can't have a powerpoint presentation. Yes, you may use visual aids, within reason. Yes, you can come a little early and set up if you need to. Yes, you can speak twice if there's room, but not if we're oversubscribed. Yes, you can finish earlier than 5 minutes. Yes, you can skip the Q&A but a room full of skeptics may hunt you down and interrogate you anyway so best to get it out of the way up front.
So get registering, you lot.
