SkepchickCon Prices Going Up

Today is the final day to pre-register for CONvergence, the home of SkepchickCon. Today the price is $60 for an adult. Tomorrow…well, you can’t pay tomorrow. If you don’t pre-register, you’ll have to pay at the door and live with a badge that doesn’t look like all the other kids’ badges. And you’ll pay $100 for the privilege.

This four-day event brings you lots of tasty science and skeptical programming aimed at geek audiences. Skepchick has lined up a bunch of cool guests, largely women to talk about skepticism and science and communicating about both of them. See all the guest bios here.* See the schedule for programming here. Look at all the other cool things happening at CONvergence. Show their anti-harassment campaign some respect.

Then go register while the prices are still a steal.**

*Melanie, who is organizing this year’s SkepchickCon, made a tactical error. While trying to collect headshots and bios from us, she threatened to post drawings of us done by her kids. Here’s mine. I seriously considered using it for their page.

Stick figure drawing of me.

I have no idea what’s going on here, but I like it.

**No one will actually charge you with theft. They may ask you to applaud the horde of volunteers who keep the prices low, though. Do it.

    Looking forward to it! And to seeing you again there. You’re always interesting to talk to.

    I think my son is subtly trying to bring back big 80s hair.

    I didn’t even have hair like that in the 80s. Too fine. Wouldn’t feather, and no amount of hairspray in the world could have given me satellite-receiver bangs.

    Same here. I tried a perm once and the curl was gone in a week, leaving my hair just kind of broken. It’s a shame, really, because I’d love my old photos to be funnier.
