Michael Shermer in T.O.
I just got back from Michael Shermer's lecture on Why People Believe Weird Things, obviously based on his book of the same name. It was a good time with a very nearly sold out auditorium. He is a practiced speaker with entertaining slides and video aids and the audience was kept attentive throughout. Even the Q&A at the end was good, although I wanted to ask about whether or not there was any progress on The Skeptologist pilot. Ah well. A fun way to spend a Friday evening.
