Hello everyone here, I wish happy New Year to all who is still here on Skeptiko, and the ones who just entered the forum. The recent year (only a pair of days left of it...) was probably the hardest for the Skeptiko podcast and forum. Many (if not most) people have left, completely or (like me) partially, creating a new forum, Psience Quest. Yet Skeptiko podcast is still quite alive, with Alex being able to invite and interview eminent people like Jaques Vallee and Jeffery Kripal. So, I hope that Skeptiko will gradually recover. Maybe in time, there would be more people here, and more activity. So, good days and nights for you all! From Russia with love, Vortex.
