Over Labor Day weekend, I'll be attending Dragon*Con in Atlanta for the dedicated skeptic track, named, aptly enough, Skeptrack. Catch me with other Skepchicks Rebecca Watson, Maria Walters, A Kovacs, Carrie Iwan and Amy Roth for the "Women's Intuition and Other Fairy Tales" panel on Saturday at 2:30 PM. As the only Skepchick mom representative there, I'll have some things to say about skeptic parenting.
Not in town? No problem - all of the Skeptrack panels will stream live here. You can also follow Skeptrack on Twitter.
If you will be in the Atlanta area this weekend, however, Colin from the Science-Based Parenting blog (who gave a great presentation at last May's SkeptiCamp Ohio) is having a party for all the skeptic parents Friday night at 10:30 PM. See the details on that and RSVP on Facebook here.
Register online for the October women in computing conference.
Startup Weekend is scheduled to hit Columbus on July 18-20. Designers, developers and all other startup-minded folk can register at the event website. There's a great tech community here in town, so registration will likely fill up fast.
The 2008 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference is now accepting submissions for participation, including research papers, panels, and workshops. They're also looking for volunteer bloggers (text and video), Twitterers, and note-takers for the conference, which will happen in Colorado in October. I'm thinking I might be able to attend this year, so I'm (virtually) jumping into preparations full-force.
