Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia project – A discussion

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 10:46:56 +0000

I am a PhD researcher looking into how information is curated online. In particular I study how curation has moved from being the pursuit of a singular expert within an institution such a museum, gallery or archive, to a collective endeavour in which many “citizen curators” (a term that I am developing) work together to […]

We need to talk about TED

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 18:33:59 +0000

TED is huge, and hugely important. But over the space of a few recent weeks, the most coveted positions on the TED website have featured a US general, a US army captain, and a photojournalist who had been embedded with the US military. What happens if people get this new message from TED, that there is a single story being promoted that aligns with the Western military?

Tom Cruise turned me into an Atheist – or Losing My Religion

Sat, 10 May 2014 18:13:13 +0000

On the 16th of July 2006 I gave up on religion. It was Tom’s fault. I forgave him ‘South Park’, I even forgave him Oprah’s couch. I could not forgive him standing up on that stage in Saint Hill, Southern England, next to our diminutive dictator and tell me that he was more dedicated, worked […]

Humanist Association of Ireland

Sun, 02 Mar 2014 19:17:32 +0000

I am just in the door from giving a talk to the Humanist Association of Ireland on what is means to be a skeptic and the story of the Dublin Skeptics in the Pub. I had a wonderful time talking to them and I hope I managed to communicate to them what skepticism means to […]

The Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre – there I said it

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 13:18:27 +0000

This has been something that I have been meaning to write about for a long time, but between one thing and another it never happened. I have been spurred on to write this now as it has begun to dawn on me that people are beginning to use this as an example of the triumph […]

So how good was the NASA Mars Rover PR campaign?

Mon, 01 Jul 2013 09:10:42 +0000

In recent years NASA has faced shrinking budgets, which in turn has led to a cessation of manned spaceflight within the US. Their focus has been on robotic missions to nearby planets, Messenger to Mercury, […]

It’s all out geekery with books, films, radio plays, science, skepticism and party rooms. I’m going to […]
