Rebecca Watson and the Skepchicks (which would make a great band name) have selected the Top 10 Skeptics Who Kicked Ass in 2008
: people who have led the fight for reason and against pseudoscience. The list includes a lot of big names within the skepticism community, notably Ben Goldacre, PZ Myers and Phil Plait.
I, being hopelessly lame, had not heard of all the winners, but thanks to Rebecca now I know, and knowing is half the battle. Yo Joe.
My favorite new-to-me winner is Thunderf00t
, whose Youtube series Why Do People Laugh at Creationists
is very funny, as are creationists (when they’re not terrifying).
