Meet the speaker - Adrienne Hill
We will end our series of posts about the speakers at the Western Canadian Conference 2023 with Adrienne Hill.
Adrienne Hill is a retired high school mathematics teacher turned active participant in the skeptic community. Adrienne has been a Guerilla Skepticism on Wikipedia (GSoW) editor, under the leadership of CFI Fellow Susan Gerbic, since 2019. She has spoken at multiple, virtual SkeptiCamps (New York City and Monterey Bay), and moderated her own WeCanReason SkeptiCamp in 2021. She is a regular reporter for The Skeptic Zone Podcast and has written for The Skeptic (Australia). She was part of Richard Saunder’s Great Australian Prediction Project, which researched and scored almost 4,000 Australian psychics’ predictions.
Adrienne’s talk is on “Skepticism and Syntax: Being a Wikipedia Guru with Giggles and Gumption“. Adrienne will take us through her journey to becoming a skeptical activist. From her first behind-the-scenes work with the Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia project to giggling on the Skeptic Zone podcast. A journey that will include haunted houses, medical pseudoscience, psychics, and silly stories. Learn how you, too, can help combat misinformation.
I hope you will have a chance to meet her in person at the Western Canadian Conference 2023. Join us, buy your ticket now.
