Event Details

Want to make a real difference in changing minds? Alone, it is difficult; together, with other like-minded people, you can affect what content people outside our “choir” see.

Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia works to improve skeptical content on the fifth most visited website, world-wide. The Skeptic Action project performs one activity a day that helps to keep pseudoscience at bay.

Presenter: Susan Gerbic
Affectionately called the Wikipediatrician, Susan Gerbic is the co-founder of Monterey County Skeptics, a steering member of the Independent Investigation Group (IIG), and a self-proclaimed skeptical junkie. Susan is also founder of both the “Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia” and the “Skeptic Action” projects.
