Skeptical Activism

This is a regular meeting for people who want to be involved in skeptical activism. We spend an evening in a pub, working collaboratively on a skeptical subject of local (New Zealand) concern.

The kinds of projects envisioned for these evenings include filing complaints with the ASA, editing Wikipedia to add a skeptical viewpoint to articles that are not presently fairly balanced and creating small websites to counter unscientific claims made by organisations such as FANNZ and the IAS. We also hope to plan trips to outside events that may interest skeptics, such as faith healing services, the annual NZ 911 Truthers' Exhibition and talks where the speaker is promoting pseudoscience.

The evening will be technology based, so please bring a laptop, tablet or smart phone. We hope to be doing a lot of internet based activity, and will be connecting to the pub's WiFi network.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
