This weekend I’ll be traveling to New York City on a student scholarship to attend the Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism, or NECSS. I probably won’t be able to update here very often, but you can still expect a Science Fact of the Day every morning until I get back.

If I get a chance, I will update here with pictures of the conference for those of you who wonder what actual gatherings of this kind look like in practice.

This will be my first time visiting the “Big Apple” and I plan on nerding out over other nerds, stalking famous people, and thwarting any potential mugging attempts with vexing word problems.
