Recently I lost my day job. I say this not in an attempt to get sympathy (though if you happen to be hiring, drop me an email or something hehe), but as an excuse for my long absence from NV, which happens to coincide very closely to GETTING that day job.
So I now have both the time and energy to give NV some attention again!
It's been a long and painful year of working my ass off at an increasingly physical job, and I'm very glad to have some time to focus on the important things...like slacking off on here.
I really don't know what else to say about that now, but I suspect people in the comments will squeeze a bit more info out of me...which is cool. But the REAL reason I'm posting this, is because I need your help.
I am trying to come up with a good topic for a talk to do at Skepticamp Ottawa next month, and I'm having trouble thinking of something that wouldn't be completely cliche and done to death. HELP! Any ideas would be great, possibly even better would be some sort of over the internet, collaborative presentation (just because I'm sure no one else will be doing THAT lol), but that might be going a bit far...maybe.
Anyway, if you have an idea of a topic I could dig my skeptic teeth into, drop it in a comment, send me a message, etc etc, and I'd be insanely thankful.
Nice to see things around here haven't changed TOO much. Will in interesting to see who finds this after my being gone for so damn long.
I think I've decided on discussing the trouble with simply following popular trends in science despite a lack of solid reasons to do so, through the example of String Theory.
