The Guild is probably not known by many who aren’t geeks. Not only does it star Felicia Day, a geek goddess who also writes and produces the series, but it’s about an online guild that spends hours every day playing a very Warcraft-like MMORPG. It currently started its 4th

There is an ongoing war, as well there should be, waged by the proponents of medical science against those who reject, demonize, deny or misuse it. The war takes place on many fronts and on many levels, and some successes include the continuing downfall of Andrew Wakefield and the

Thanks to Mike McRae (@tribalscientist on Twitter) for this timely essay!
A butterfly flapping its wings might cause a typhoon in China, but if it suggests showing its cleavage, just what can we expect? Going on the recent Boobquake event, natural disasters are the least of our concerns; of bigger concern is the controversy on how

There’s a thing going on with skeptic bloggers today. I found out about it via Sean the Blogonaut and since I like feeling like I’m part of some bigger thing, I thought, what the hey.
She Thought is running a “We Only Like You Because You’re Good in Blog” event where skeptic bloggers are

It would be great if the answer to that question was “you’re the best baby” but in reality, I’m not too concerned how others rate me.
