What is SkeptiCamp?


SkeptiCamp is a new kind of BarCamp, a conference whose content is provided by attendees. Where BarCamp is focused on technology, SkeptiCamp instead focuses on topics of interest to skeptics, including science, critical thinking and skeptical inquiry. For full details, including a listing of other camps being organized, visit the SkeptiCamp main page.

  • Marlowe Cassetti – I was involved in the Gemini-1 mission UFO cover-up when I was with NASA in the mid 1960s. My interest now is in the introduction of critical thinking to the public. As an example, senior citizens are targeted by Scammers because seniors are considered an “easy mark” for fleecing. If the public was aware of critical thinking techniques they might avoid being victimized.
  • Dumb All Over - Available for extemporaneous filler material if needed.
