QEDcon: Friday gathering
I'm at QEDcon in Manchester for the weekend. The conference title translates to Question Explore Discover, and is a two-day science and skepticism conference. It is, according to the website, "a weekend celebration of science, reason and critical thinking".
The first conference started around this time last year. I attended but regretted a) not turning up on the Friday night and b) not keeping some kind of notes on the speaker's talks. So this year I turned up with my wife on the Friday and had a fantastic night of alcohol fuelled conversation about so many things with many different people.
I'm planning on making notes on each talk and posting them here. The first talk is by Deborah Hyde and it's about the Natural History of the European Werewolf.
