The Del Mar Lounge is packed with TAM-goers enjoying skeptical conviviality and friendship. The crowd is mostly male, but there are plenty if women there too. I have not noticed any difference in social norms for thing like hugging from previous TAMs. I am beginning to think that the FtB/Skepchick Axis has failed (at least so far) in their scheme/conspiracy to destroy the Jref/TAM and replace them with a more compliant group like CFI. That is a happy revelation.
