Gen Con 2010 Presentation Videos!

Posted by Adversarial Writer #2 on August 1, 2011

After almost a year and just in time for Gen Con 2011, I have sat my ass down and put the videos of last year’s presentations on YouTube.

Did you know that YouTube removed all length restrictions on their videos? I didn’t, until after I had spent hours looking for a good free video editor. Then I spent days, days I tell you, trying to upload these giant files and hitting snag after snag after snag. I must have restarted the upload three times after hours and hours of progress.

But it all worked out! Below the fold you will find the videos we captured of two of last year’s offerings: the panel “Skepticism, Critical Thinking, and Pop Culture” and the presentation “Cargo Cult Science.” If for some reason you must have HD, you can watch them in HD on YouTube itself.

Audio: Cargo Cult Science Presentation 2010

Posted by Adversarial Writer #2 on March 30, 2011

I mentioned in an earlier post that a couple of gentlemen were kind enough to record our Cargo Cult Science podcast last year but that I had forgotten who or what or where.

Well, in digging through my Gmail, I have located the answers to all of those “w” words. The “who” was Kevin Weiser, the “what” was The Walking Eye Podcast, and the “where” is this link right here. That will take you to the page where you can download the audio from last year’s presentation so you have some idea what you’re getting into in 2011.┬áThe talk went really well last year and I hope you like it. Here’s a podcast they did that wraps up their Gen Con experience; I haven’t listened to it, but we’re linked on the page which implies that we were mentioned. Give it a listen.

Thanks for putting this together for us, Kevin! Sorry it took me so long to get you your official kudos.
