Think Inc. is a telling name: Dedicated to nurturing rational discourse, the bright heads behind the organisation organise Q&A sessions, forums and other events with luminaries and subject matter experts from a range of areas to make specialist knowledge accessible for both - those in the know and those on the periphery interested in gaining deeper insight into academic and scientific specialist knowledge.
Summa summarum, an innovative concept aimed at the provision of a platform to strike a balance between the application of academic rigour and the celebration of science without dumbing the matter in question down.
Skepticon Australia 2017 is a Think Inc.’s two-day ideas festival meant for anybody who seeks truth and is ready to question the most recent fads with a diverse range of presenters, covering the gamut of skeptical and scientific topics aiming at tackling opportunistic quacks seeking to peddle and profit from their pseudoscientific claims – think the danggers of wireless internet, WiFi 'dangers', fads like the Paleo diet that refuses to return to its beloved paleolithic era, and therapies like cupping et cetera.
This ideas festival ran over the course of a weekend, consisting of presentations, panel discussions, Questions & Answers sessions and performances, e.g. bands and other Think Inc related artists..
Professor Alan Duffy, renowned luminary in the fields of astrophycisim and science communication, joined forces for the first time with LA Area Emmy Award winning journalist, science communicator, television personality, producer and podcaster, Cara Santa Maria, joined the stage to create Beyond the Eye.
Filmmaker, futurist and self-proclaimed ‘epiphany addict’ Jason Silva “likes ideas”. He states that tenacity and flexibility as well as their infectious nature is what excites as well their ability to spawn and prepare fertile ground for new ideas. And that is exactly what he did – he descended onto terra australis to share them.
