We almost forgot to tell you about two new things at Skepticon this year!

The first is that we will be changing our seating around in the Main hall so that the center sections will all have tables so that you may be able to utilize the space better. Now for those of you that prefer the theater seating, we are keeping the wings the same. This should give you more room, and a better verity of seating options. We know that we have a lot of bloggers out there that attend skepticon, and we wanted to give you the ability to take notes if you wanted. With this setup, there will not be charging stations except in the back of the house like it was before.

The second announcement is that we now have a mobile app!

All you have to do is:
1.) Go to http://eventsxd.com/download and Select your Platform!
2.) Search for Skepticon 10

With this you can search by Speakers, Rooms, or Tracks.

Hope you enjoy!

Help Skepticon host our website and get $10 to host your own!

Hi, Bart, your friendly neighborhood web site nerd here.

Here at Skepticon HQ we host our website on Digital Ocean a “Virtual Private Server” service.  It usually costs us about $10 a month to host our very own virtual server in the cloud. But thanks to a promo going on right now with Digital Ocean you can get $10 in Digital Ocean credit to try your hand at hosting your own website in the cloud. Or run a your own cloud minecraft server, or whatever you can think of!  We use one of the larger virtual servers which cost $10, but they have a smaller one that is only $5 month! You could run a server for free for 2 WHOLE MONTHS!

Just use this fancy referral link to get your 10 BUCKS and we here at Skepticon HQ will get $25 in Digital Ocean Credit to help us pay for the Skepticon website. It’s what those in big business call a “WIN-WIN” situation.
