By all reports (which I had to rely on because I couldn't go because I'm 500 miles away dammit) things went smashingly and the turnout was incredible (well over 2,000 I've read). I even know someone from up here in the Bay who was down there to see the event. Dawkins has competition though, since I've heard from people who said they liked Sean Faircloth or Elisabeth Cornwell better as speakers. Too much star power edged out Dawkins a little? That's a good problem to have.
Missed it? Poke around on Facebook for the pictures (I can't find them but will post them here when I do). In the meantime, here's a radio interview from before the talk. There's been surprisingly little media coverage of the event. In a way I find that encouraging. Thousands of atheists assemble; little to no public outcry!
