If you think you’ve heard some scrambling as you’ve read FreethoughtBlogs in the last few days, it’s because we’re getting all the administrative structure in place for FtBCon(science)2 this weekend. The schedule is here and just about complete, minus those last-minute, “Wait, what time did you have the down for? In what time zone?” kinds of snarls. We’ll have those sorted out in the next day so you can make your plans.
How do you attend FtBCon2? You can reach all the information you need through our main conference page. The schedule and the chat room are both linked at the top of the right column. The schedule page for each session will contain a link to the Google Event page on which the hangout is being hosted. If you open that page, the video feed should auto-load when it starts (reload if it doesn’t).
Once again, the Pharyngula chat room will be open during the conference for people to ask their questions. The moderators will identify themselves for each session as they start and collection questions for the panelists or speakers. Some moderators may also watch the #FtBCon hashtag on Twitter, but that’s not guaranteed. They’ll tell you at the start of the session.
As ever, the videos for each session will stay available on the Event page, and all videos will be collected in a playlist at the end of the conference for convenience. Even if you can’t watch live, or if you want to see two sessions that are scheduled opposite each other, you don’t have to miss anything.
