Why Skeptech? What is so important about technology that it became the theme of this event? After exploring other important topics like science, community, activism, politics, sexuality, and human rights – we settled on technology because we thought it was relatively unique, absolutely essential to the atheist movement, something most people want to learn more about, and something that just about everyone can relate to. At SkepTech we are first and foremost dedicated to education. We want people to come away from this conference with practical skills that they can use in the the secular movement, and also in their daily lives.
