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!
