i go to new york

Decided to attend NECSS in Manhattan. That’s the Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism. Some of the NECSS highlights for me included:

  • Most of the medical-related sessions. Of particular interest was hearing doctors give accounts of dealing with patients who are also seeing and getting advice from alternative health providers.
  • The Skeptical Extravaganza of Special Significance was very entertaining and funny thanks to the wonderful George Hrab and the wide variety of stunts and activities.
  • Bill Nye was both amusing and inspirational when discussing climate change.
  • Richard Wiseman’s keynote. He combines engaging and enlightening in a perfect way.

In addition to the conference, I got pizza, of course. Multiple times. A little place called Amadeus was the local slice source for me. Also visited Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History. I spent hours at the latter, including attending a spectacular Hayden Planetarium show. Also saw a very fine production of Matilda.
