I'm in Slough - work in London. This thread is a couple years old, though, any current activity?

Hi. Yes, it's still going. The last meeting "The neuropsychology of self control - and its implications for AI and brain simulation" was on 13 November. See my links above for future meetings, and hope to see you there :)

Cool. Thanks. That does sound interesting.

I did check out the group page, but I noticed that you can't see the calendar unless you're a member... but I don't like to join unless I can see the calendar of past events (to see if they're local/relevant/interesting etc)... catch-22 sometimes ;)

Of course, I could join, look, then unjoin - but that's far more effort... especially when you have to be approved first.

Hmm... that does seem a little foot-shooting, unless you join too many groups and want a reason not to ;)

There's nothing in the ExtroBritannia list's calendar though, but you can see the events on the blog.

That would be an accurate description of my life ;)

Currently I am interested in way too many things - and have a habit of joining up to all of them to see if I'm interested enough to continue going along...

Unfortunately I am limited by time from going to everything I'd like.
