Next week, I’ll be presenting on myths at ATD’s International Conference (Tues, 1PM). Moreover, there’ll be a book signing at 4PM! I hope to see you there, and, for more reasons than you might first imagine.
For one, ATD’s supposed to be supplying me with special bookmarks. Always nice to have a book mark specific to the book, I reckon. I haven’t seen them yet, but if they’re leveraging the cool design work of Fran Fernandez they used for the book, they’ll be great. But wait, there’s more…
I’ve also arranged for some special ‘Debunk’ badge ribbons. These limited edition collectors items (*ahem* :) are available to those who can show me their copy of the book (digital or print). It’s to proudly wear on your badge showing you’re fighting on the side of learning science. (As to the pic: the ribbon was not supposed to be ‘cantelope’. Fortunately, the company is making it right so these ones have gone back. They will be orange, and the print and design will be the same. Fingers crossed they arrive in time!)
There are other ways to find out more. You can of course buy the book; either through Amazon (Kindle too) or via ATD (PDF too). (Rumor has it that using the code ‘SPRINGBOOKS18’ at ATD will get you 10% off!)
Of course, there’s the ATD webinar for members on May 24th at 11AM PT (2PM ET). There’ll be one for the Debunker Club on June 6th at 10AM PT (1PM ET), details forthcoming. Other webinars are in the works, so stay tuned.
And there’ll be interviews. Also forthcoming. Yes, I’m trying to get the word out, but it’s for a good cause: better learning!
So, if you’re going to ICE, please do say hello (and safe travels). I know San Diego (and love it): undergrad and grad school at UCSD, and brother still lives there, so I visit a lot. My recommendations: fish tacos (Rubios is a safe bet), carnitas (e.g. Old Town Mexican Cafe), and carne asada burritos (but only at a taqueria, not at a restaurant). There are some great local brews; Stone, Pizza Port, and Ballast Point all make a good drop. Also, margaritas if you can get them made properly, not with a mixer. Hope to see you there!
