FTBCon is coming

Russell here, telling you to get your tickets now for FTBCon next month! Wait, what? You don’t need any tickets. It’s free!

So if you don’t have the time or money to travel to all the other fun events that have been happening, like the American Atheist convention and Skepticon, now you can attend an online conference with many of the same excellent people speaking, from your living room! In your underwear, even! Just tune in to the live streams of various Google Hangouts that will be going on throughout the day. Many will even invite audience participation.

Important tip: We do not recommend that you broadcast yourself on a Google Hangout in your underwear.

So far, I’m signed up to do an “Evangelical Atheism” presentation, Beth will be on a panel, Lynnea will be on another panel, others from the ACA may or may not get involved. Aron Ra will be there. Mark your calendars for July 19-21!

    So many people whom I’d like to meet, there.

    And I have to be in WV those weeks.

    So have fun, everyone! Really wish I could be there…

  2. John Nugent says

    Meaning, of course, I shall be staying in a Fundamentalist household, where watching this might ruffle a few feathers…

    Will it be uploaded to YouTube, afterward?

  3. Monocle Smile says

    Careful with the Google Hangouts; FreeThoughtBlogs could turn into FreeThoughtDongs real fast.

  4. Lord Narf says

    I’d make a joke about Beth, but we don’t want to see Matt’s superpowers in use …

  5. Lord Narf says

    I got a message about embedding being disabled, when I hit the play button on this page. You can still pull it up on YouTube, of course.

  6. says

    You said you got a message saying the video wouldn’t embed…I was doh-ing about the failure to embed after I was able to visibly see it myself–lol

  7. Lord Narf says

    Still doesn’t allow embedding for me. You’d think that any regional block would work the same for us. I’m one state above you, depending upon how you measure it.
