This is when and where you can find me for sure for the next few days.
Thursday, July 4 • 5:00pm – 6:00pm: Evolutionary Psychology
Media-friendly evo-psych usually isn’t reality-friendly. What does it take to do evolutionary psychology right, and how can you spot the BS? Panelists: Greg Laden, Stephanie Zvan (mod), Amanda Marcotte, Indre Viskontas, PZ Myers
Saturday, July 6 • 12:30pm – 1:30pm: Fight the Trolls
Last year we said don’t feed the trolls; this year we tell you how to fight the trolls. “Don’t feed the trolls” isn’t always an effective strategy, particularly with sexism and online harassment. Learn when, why, and how to fight the trolls instead. Panelists: Nora Last, Stephanie Zvan (mod), Amanda Marcotte, Rebecca Watson, Amy Davis Roth
Saturday, July 6 • 8:30pm – 9:30pm: The Real World vs. the Internet
A line is a blurring and a distinction is fading: social networking and online communities are becoming just as real as face-to-face engagements. Panelists: Jason Thibeault, PZ Myers, Lux Pickel, Stephanie Zvan (mod), Jamie Bernstein
The full schedule for the con is here. And, of course, each night will feature the FtB Brains party in cabana 228. Come say, “Hi!”
