TAM London DVDs available for pre-order!

I’m very pleased to hear that TAM London DVDs are now available for pre-order!


They have 12 hours of skeptical and scientific wonderfulness on them, including performances by James Randi, Richard Wiseman, Brian Cox, Ariane Sherine, Simon Singh, Jon Ronson (who wrote Men Who Stare At Goats), as well as exclusive interviews, backstage footage, and lots more.

To give you an idea of what it’s all about, event organizer Tracy King (whom I thank very much for putting this together) has posted a preview on YouTube:

Yeah, you want this. And proceeds go to the JREF, so it’s a good cause, too! So go! Get yer DVD!

    So, are the DVD’s PAL, then? It might be a good idea to make that kind of thing clear.

    mmmh a real positive effort would be to release those vids for free. LIKE TED.

  3. Mau (#2): TED is backed by a huge number of very wealthy sponsors. The JREF is a small non-profit that lives year-to-year through donations. Sales of these DVDs will actually help the JREF exist, and cost a lot of money to produce, which is why they cannot be given away.

    I already wanted to go to one of these but now after seeing all the cute young women who also show an interest in science and skepticism I’m more than ecstatic to go! I know, how juvenile…

    So are they going to censor all the colourful metaphors we love in England?

  6. Ordered! I should be able to use some of these lectures with my students, save myself some work and be able to say: “Oh, by the way. I was in the audience.” ūüėÄ

    @Mau TAM London admission fee was £200 and admission fee to TED is $6000, so then they have opportunity to publish all talks under cc licence. Both systems work great.

    ordered mine. I was there and had a great time. 600 people just like me – what’s not to like?

  9. @Bjornar using them for lectures is a great idea – do let me know how that goes! Do watch them first to make sure you know where the swearing is though ūüėÄ

    Doh! i had never even heard of it until now, i am the most asocial person there is, but i would have definately paid the £200 to be in a room of like minded people, i feel so alone in my little world surrounded by odd normal people.

    I agree with mau, the dvds should be free, they will find there way on to the torrent websites which is a good think, it might inspire others to be more involved.

  11. Dude, you should post this in Facebook, dontchathink?
