TAM 5 Report #5: Blogs and photos

I'm all out of video interviews from TAM (I did interview Richard Wiseman on the webcam, but it got all messed up and I won't air it). I still have one or two stories to tell -- a longish one involving Penn and Joe Rogan, of all people, and I guarantee you'll like this one! -- but they can wait. So for those of you who wish they could have gone to TAM 5, or wonder what it was like to go, I have been collecting blog entries of people who were there, as well as pictures form the meeting. Below I've listed them for your reading and viewing pleasure.

Phil Plait Phil Plait

Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  

But first, I need to make a special shout-out to one Robert Lancaster. Last year at TAM 4, Robert gave a short presentation on his Stop Kaz website (wherein he single-handedly stopped a nasty scamming "psychic" from defrauding more people). Robert recently opened up his StopSylviaBrowne website, and we are hoping for the same results: the 100% dead-stopping of that horrible, horrible woman. At TAM 5, a lot of events came together to propel Robert into the limelight, giving his efforts much needed national coverage.

Go read Robert's story. It's very, very cool.

OK, on with it then.
