TAM London tickets up for grabs!

By Phil Plait | May 28, 2009 6:00 am

When the JREF opened up registration for TAM London (our critical thinking conference to be held on October 3-4 of this year), the response was literally overwhelming: the server and database both freaked out. Now that the dust has settled and we’ve confirmed how many people got tickets, we have a pleasant bit of news: more tickets are indeed available!

Rather than simply do a first-come-first-served offer, which can be biased towards some time zones over others, we have opted instead to have an email lottery. Here’s the deal, as enumerated on the TAM London website:

1) Send an email to tickets@tamlondon.org from the email address you wish you register. You don’t have to put anything in the email (unless you really want to), the subject and body won’t be read.

2) You will receive an automated response confirming you’ve been added to the database.

3) 25 email addresses will be chosen at random on Sunday 7th June. If yours is chosen, you will be notified by email no later than Monday 8th June 2009 with a link to buy a maximum of two tickets.

4) Your purchase link will expire after two weeks. If you have not made a purchase after that time, another email address will be drawn.

There’s more info on the website, including terms and conditions, so PLEASE go there before sending in your email.

This deadline is a little over a week away, so get cracking! And remember, you can keep up with TAML on Facebook, Twitter, and through RSS.

    It didn’t do the unfortunate rabbit any good. 😉

    I have my fingers crossed…couldnt believe how fast it sold out last time

    Incidentally (a bit off topic sorry, but don’t know how else to show you) – here is a very great genuine news article from the award winning BBC, a great pareidolia

    @ alex: That’s not Jesus, that’s George Harrison.

  7. I’ll have a post up about the Marmite shortly. I got a lot of email about it.

    Hadn’t thought of George Harrison, but my vision is close. You’ll see why. :)

    Any chance of a bigger venue for TAM London 2010?
