|Yours truly, awkward tall guy with unkempt hair, with PZ|
Unfortunately, I need to get back to Montreal tomorrow morning, but I had a great time!
Veronica from Canadian Atheist was nice enough to introduce me to PZ Myers. I then got to meet Heina Dadabhoy, Ian Cromwell, Hank Fox, Ania Bula, Vyckie Garrison, Seanna from CFI Ottawa, and Kevin Smith and Michael Payton from CFI Canada! And many many more awesome people!
Not only were you guys happy to chat with nervous old me, but you all were happy to let this conference nube feel welcome. Heina even taught me some dinosaur facts I'd not know and suggested a cool book for my son! I think it's this one! Thanks, Heina!
PZ delivered a very informative talk on Chance in Evolution. It started out with a laugh when it was discovered someone had edited his introductory slide to read PZed Myers (Most Canadians pronounce the letter 'Z' as zed.) The talk itself taught me a lot about evolution I had never known before. The fascinating thing is the one-hour talk seemed to fly by and felt like just 15 minutes to me. It was very entertaining!
You can bet I will come back for another conference! Thanks, all of you! You're all awesome!
