Skepchickcon Report

Skepchickcon and CONvergence have been over for more than a week, but I haven't gotten around to writing about it yet. Some of that is because I was enjoying our house guests instead. Some of it was because I went to TAM the day after those guests left. A lot of it was simply because I was still processing everything that happened. It was a packed long weekend.

Find out what happened at Quiche Moraine. While you're there, you might also want to check out my last post, which I complete failed to link to: "The Problem with Sock Puppets."

Those who engage in sock puppetry, however, are making a raid on reputation. They’re stealing it, either by exploiting the bandwagon fallacy to accrue unearned regard for their position or by disowning the negative effects that attacking someone else has on reputation, basically shoplifting a smackdown every now and again. YNH did both.

I still can't believe you did so much in such a short time! You are superwoman.

Oh, no, not at all. Carrie is the superwoman who made things so easy for the rest of us.

Well, even if that is so, I still think you are! :) There's room for more than one superwoman on my friend list...

I can verify she's a superwoman, sunnyskeptic. She totally picked Jodi and I up AT THE SAME TIME.

(At the airport. With their car.)
