How did learn about Skepticism and "Skeptics in the Pub?"

I have met a few, but then again, far too few to mention. I would love to meet more skeptics, science buffs and people interested in reason, humanism and a reality based perspective on life.

Have you ever been a member of a Skeptical organization anywhere else in the world?

Skepticality; The Skeptics Guide to the Universe; Skeptoid; The History of Rome; The Conspiracy Skeptic; Things You Missed in History Class; BBC4 World of Business; BBC4 In Our Time; Material World; QuackCast; Point of Inquiry; The Economist; Reasonable Doubts; Dan Carlin's Hard Core History; All in the Mind; The Infinite Monkey Cage; Buddhist Geeks; The Brain Science Podcast; and a smattering of film business related shows... Podcasts are your best friends out and about or during the commute, unless you have a friend with you.

Do you have any questions or comments about the nature of our activities? Skepticism is not a universally agreed upon term as so can be misleading.

Let's talk about cognitive biases. "Mistakes Were Made but not by Me" kind of stuff... It's truly hard to audit oneself unless one spends many years practicing after many years of personal inquiry. It's hard to predict the future and the TOTAL HUMAN impact on our world, nature, culture, etc... What can we do to have some small, positive agency in creating a better future for children? How can we contribute to global literacy and access to quality educational programs? How about organizing a TAM HONG KONG? Let's create our own public speaking group dedicated to critical thinking, positive skepticism, and other important topics of the day with potentially local and global trans formative impact.

Tell the group and the organizers a little bit about yourself. Include things like nationality, places you've lived, things you like to do, etc.

Introduction

I'm a film/video producer and ad creative from San Francisco: a positive skeptic, autodidact, and raconteur. I've been a big fan of THE SKEPTIC'S GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE since it's inception and have followed the Amazing Randy for decades. Complexity!

What Steven C. is saying about this Meetup Group

We need to cause more trouble. LOL
