While AU Skepticamps had been in discussion for a while, Skepticamp Australia was kicked off at The Amazing Meeting Australia 2010
, during a panel talk on Skeptical Activism. A question came from moderator Brian Dunning "What would you do for activism if you were handed a budget?"
My answer was that I would organise a skepticamp, to inspire, inform and motivate skeptics in Australia. And I said that if people gave me some money there and then, that's exactly what I'd do.
Immediately, panelists and audience members offered money, and by the end of the weekend, Skepticamp was firmly implanted as an upcoming event.Jason Brown
