The Amaz!ng Meeting

For those who do not know, The Amaz!ng Meeting, or TAM, is an annual skeptical meeting held by the James Randi Educational Foundation, or JREF. Also commonly referred to as “nerdvana”, it is a 4-day event with tons of lectures and skeptical festivities. Last years TAM included lectures from Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, PZ Myers, Matthew Chapman, Sharon Begley, Phil Plait, Penn & Teller, Richard Saunders, Dr. Richard Wiseman, Dr. Michael Shermer, Adam Savage and Steven Novella. Next years TAM (TAM 7) will take place in Las Vegas at the South Point Hotel and Casino from July 9 – July 12 2009. It will most likely be a hoot. I know I would be going if I lived in the states…sigh… Anyways, more information about TAM, and also the Amaz!ng Adventures, can be found here
