My talk to Sydney Atheists: Online Activism 101

I've just published the talk I delivered to the Sydney Atheists on Online Activism to Slideshare. It doesn't work perfectly, since some of the slides were animated, but the overview looks something like this: 


If all goes to plan, this will also be presented as a podcast from Sydney Atheists, so you can listen to me ramble as you read the slides.

If you'd like a talk like this delivered at your skeptical, atheist, humanist or freethinkers group, please let me know. I'm also working up a more specific "Skeptical Social Media" talk and can present more specific case studies on some of the campaigns I've been around, including Stop The AVN, #VoteRachie and Chanology. Also, if you've done something interesting online around the skeptical activism subject, please drop me some info and I can mention you in the talks. If you're off on the other side of the world and would like to deliver something based on these slides, likewise let me know and I can help out.

I'll be delivering version 2.0 of this presentation at the Western Sydney Freethinkers September meeting in Penrith, NSW (Sunday 19th at 2pm, Penrith School of Arts*), so please pop in and give me some feedback. It'll be a variation of this one as I incorporate more of the interesting, solid stuff and less of the boring, rambling inaccurate stuff.

I'm hoping to get a few other groups to invite me along in the coming months, if they can stand the sight of my scruffy, stubble-laden countenance and put up with my disorganised, inebriated ways, so watch this space.

*the web calendar says Penrith RSL, please check the blog for the final venue

I think you should open with the uke :)

I might open with a uke song, in the future. I'll almost certainly have my uke with me at the TAMOZ open mic night....

Are you available to speak in USA, or just Australia? I'm head of a freethinker group and we're always interested in speakers

For readers (and Mike)

Travel costs make speaking in the US a bit prohibitive at the moment, though I would absolutely love to. I'd be open to speaking pretty much anywhere, as long as I can get the travel and the time off organised.

I'm in Sydney, Australia, so calculate from there ;-)
