In good company ...

Wow, you're in the big league now Dr. Dr! (By the way, they only put one PhD post nominal, better get them to fix that.) Well done.

So, when are you going to organize a conference here in Melbourne with a similar list of speakers?

Russell Blackford said...

Someone is already organising it, Brian. There's a big conference coming up in March. Stay tuned for announcements.

Yeah, that's the one.

Los Angeles - it's always Los Angeles. Why can't they stage these things in Seattle? (Because it's a smaller city. I know, I know.) I wanna go!

When you are in LA, I would like to have you as a guest on the new and upcoming Minnesota Atheists "Atheist Talk" podcast (which is replacing the successful on-air show.)

Contact me if you are interested.

Wow...what a lineup. Wish I'd been invited...I may have to think about going stag.

It's a little weird that an anti-vaxer like Maher is getting the Dawkins award, but I plan to be there and look forward to meeting you in person.
