TAM 7 Begins! PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by Jeff Wagg   

For those of you not attending TAM, I can understand if you'd rather not read about it. After all, you're missing out on the premiere skeptical event of the year, and possibly the largest skeptic gathering of al time. But, I urge you to read this, because technology has moved forward, and you can actually attend TAM in the comfort of your own home. Ok, not really... but you can share the excitement in a bunch of new ways:

  • If you're a Twitter user, you can follow TAMLive for frequent updates with photos. Also, search #TAM7 for a lot of chatter about the event.

  • We will be trying to UStream some of the event, including the live Million Dollar Challenge on Sunday. For the uninitiated, UStream is a live video streaming web application that will allow us to send audio and video of the event straight to your computer. People watching the stream can also chat with one another via a built-in chat (IRC) application. The quality will just be OK - you'll still want to buy the TAM 7 DVDs when they're available, but for the first time, you'll be able to get a taste of what it's like to be at TAM live.

  • We're hoping to set up a live blog of TAM. This is a blog, like Swift that will be updated frequently with reports on the speakers and what's going on, hopefully with pictures. This is a recent development, so I don't have the details yet. When I do, you'll see them here.

So stay tuned, and join us for TAM. Of course, you can always choose the old fashioned method and actually come in person. Space is still available!

For those new in the ways of twitter, perhaps instructions or even one of those "Follow" links you can just click?

By the way, note that your "Twitter" link is dead.

And I'm not trying to spam, 60 seconds or not, I noticed the dead link just after I posted.

OK....for Twitter newbies like me: you can't find @TAMLive as though you were trying to add a person, but you can type @TAMLive into the search box in the right margin, and you'll see not only posts by people @TAMLive (Skepdude RT, yjmbo, etc....) but posts by other frustrated (presumably newbies like me) such as:

deltamat @JeffWagg It's probably me, but @TAMLive doesn't seem to exist yet

I think I'll wait for the DVD. There are so many people I'd love to meet though - like the Amaz!ing.

Jeff,

It appears that the UStream link you posted is down. Since I can't make it to TAM this year, I definitely want to view the Million $ Challenge if it is going to be streamed! Thanks!

Jay

*grumble*
I was in Vegas last week!

I did get to see Penn & Teller, at least, though just in the usual context. (And, even though the show was excellent, boss...I hate to say it boss, but Penn was less than polite to his fans, boss. Sorry boss, kinda regretted staying after for signature, boss. Won't be doing that next time, boss. Hope he doesn't do that during TAM, boss.)

If only I'd hit a big jackpot, I could have stayed out there for TAM!

I think TAM 2010 needs to be more considerate of my vacation plans.

DVDs
written by tarrkid, July 10, 2009
Those DVDs you mention... roughly when will they be available?

Basically, I just want to know if they'll be out in time to make the absolutely perfect Christmas gift for my wife...
