If you thought you knew these people, you're about to get to know them better. If you have never heard of these people, then frankly you need to brush up on the history of the modern scientific skeptical movement. Get back to basics.
The Skeptic's Toolbox is the longest running skeptic conference in our history, bet you never heard of it!
Beyerstein and Andrus are no longer physically with us, but their memories and work continues. I'm very proud to have met them both.
When you meed Alcock, Hyman and Pankratz at a conference, make sure you introduce yourself, thank them for making the skeptical movement possible and then ask them what they got up their sleeves next. Cause they aren't even slowing down.
Before I get to the launchings, I might add that faculty member Harriet Hall already has a beautiful Wikipedia page that Tim Farley launched over a year ago. I have just been keeping it updated for this release.

One more random thing I want to mention. The Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia team has decided that moving forward when we link to the term skeptic we are going to start linking to the WP page for scientific skepticism. If you find pages where this has not happened, please make the change for us. If you are not comfortable doing this, and don't want to be trained, please just drop me a email.
Like what you see. think you want to get involved? Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will keep you busy.
