Post in this thread if you live in the US or Canada.
Also Victoria, BC.
(Same person as user "Eoghanalbar", which I'm not using anymore.)
Also Victoria, BC. Home of the sasquatch and pacific tree octopus, and where the conservative party is named 'the liberals'.
Im in ur capital advizin ur prezident.
glad I'm not the only Bayesian who loves OotS
In the NoVA/DC area as well.
I'm not officially in DC, but I'm close enough to have a metro stop within walking distance of my house.
Within 160 miles or ~3 hours of DC according to Mapquest.
In between DC and Baltimore
Likewise, in the DC area.
likewise - DC
Québec, Qc, Canada.
Me too: Montreal, Canada.
Post in this thread if you live within what you consider easy driving distance from New York City.
NYC area: Rob Zahra, AlexU, and Michael Vassar sometimes...
I live in NYC proper.
ay, North Kersey for me and I am in the city 3-4 days a week
I live in central New Jersey.
Me too: Princeton.
I said Princeton above, since it's my mailing address (and recognizable to non-locals.) Close enough, I guess, and anyway I've recently been spending most of my time (here) in Frist.
Long Island, work in NYC
Princeton, NJ. Easy train ride up. I visit NYC every other weekend.
Driving distance? I live in Manhattan, sans car.
I visit NYC several times a year - whatever that's worth. I live in Chicago though.
Salt Lake City.
Seems we're the entire mountain time delegation.
I don't think words can convey just how happy seeing this post has made me.
I am also from Salt Lake City :)
hey me too!
Great! Perhaps we could stage a meetup.
Oh, hey there! Nice to know I'm not completely alone here.
Post in this thread if you live in the Pacific Northwest.
I live in Redmond, WA.
I'm in central Oregon
Post in this thread if you live within driving distance of Dallas, TX.
Waco, TX. (Prompt reply, I know...)
Sugar Land (Houston area), not exactly day trip material but with sufficient notice I could make something.
We do seem to be thin on the ground in Texas.
I'm currently in Tyler, TX.
I live in Richardson.
I just caught this when I saw Silas post in the sidebar. I don't know if you're still around LW, but I live in Richardson as well, although I plan to move to the Bay Area soon.
I live in Mount Pleasant, TX.
I'm moving to Ottawa on May 1st.
How many people do we need to have quorum?
One representative from each of the twelve colonies.
Can I be Caprica?
Certainly! And I shall be the Vogon representative.
I'm mostly a lurker, but I'm in Toronto.
Post in this thread if you live in New England
I attend the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH, and live on campus.
I am in Massachusetts about every other weekend on average, and I considered posting this in "Massachusetts." I could easily make a MA meetup.
Post in this thread if you live in Massachusetts
I live in Amherst, MA.
Should we also be posting how mobile we are? I rely on the bus system and the goodwill of my roommate to get around. I couldn't attend an event in, say, Boston unless there was carpooling.
Medford, MA. Enjoyed the OB meetup on the MIT campus, which was convenient since I work across the street. I'd be up to renting a car and driving to Amherst or New Hampshire for a meetup on a weekend, especially if there was time for hiking.
Cambridge, MA. Rarely venture beyond Boston metro area.
However, I'll in the Pioneer Valley on Apr. 17-19, if anyone is interested in a meetup that Sunday (19th), say NoHo or Amherst.
The bus is less friendly on weekends, but I could get as far as Amherst Center (and back) without spending unduly long waiting for multiple buses.
I live in South Deerfield, MA and work in Northampton
Contact me at EconomicProf@Yahoo.com
I live in Bedford, MA
I live in Plymouth, MA during the summer, and am able to get to Boston.
West Hartford, CT.
New Haven, CT. I go to Boston and NYC sometimes so a meetup either place might be possible. Or here as the in-between spot.
Post in this thread if you live in California
Post in this thread if you live in the Bay Area.
I live in San Francisco.
I live in Santa Clara, but I don't have a car, so...
I live in Marin County.
I live in Redwood City, at least for now.
I live in Berkeley.
I'm in Palo Alto
Palo Alto (it might technically be EPA)
I live in Davis.
I live in seaside,ca.
Hey there. I think our current closest regular meetup is at Tortuga in Mountain View, which is to say -- miles away from you. If you're inclined to try hosting your own meetup, I strongly suspect you'd at least hear from some UCSC folk.
Post in this thread if you live in Southern California
I've started a meetup group for LessWrongers in Southern California
I'm in pasadena
Playa del Rey, by the beach just south of Santa Monica and West of LA proper.
Post in this thread if you live in Santa Barbara County
I live between Goleta and Santa Barbara. I am 54.
also, just created a Less Wrong in SB group on Facebook
Awesome, if you and jimmy are up for it, maybe we could all get some dinner in the next week some time
I'm in Isla Vista
I'm having some trouble responding to your PM, so:
I'm working for prof Richman, though more "trying to get up to speed" than "working" right at the moment. I just had Nelson for my particle class the last two quarters -- it was a lot of fun.
So I was thinking if Hal was up for it the three of us could grab some dinner in the next week or so -- that work for you?
Also: LW SB group
Sounds good to me.
Awesome, I'm Mike, I'm a physics grad at UCSB
I attend University of California, Santa Barbara, and live on campus.
Post in this thread if you live in Orange County
I live in San Clemente, but I'd be willing to drive anywhere in Orange County for an occasional meetup.
Irvine, CA here
EDIT: I now live in Palo Alto
I'll be at Chapman University in Orange for 6 weeks this summer. I imagine The city of Orange is in Orange County, but correct me if I'm wrong.
yes indeed it is =)
it's about half an hour north of lake forrest, if memory serves.
Which six weeks? That might be a good time to shoot for a so-cal meetup
June 29 to August 7
I live in Lake Forest
I could catch a train down to OC pretty easily.
Florida, the central part.
New Brunswick, Canada.
St. Paul, Minnesota -- I see there was a meetup in 2009 but could't find anything else... how many Minnesotans are there? Can we get together?
Post in this thread if you're in the Philadelphia area.
Within 28 miles or 40 minutes of Philadelphia according to Mapquest, which sounds basically accurate to me.
I'm in Philadelphia.
Albuquerque, New Mexico.
About 280 miles or 5 hours from Pittsburgh according to Mapquest.
Post in this thread if you live in the midwestern USA or nearby areas of Canada, ideally roughly within a day's drive of Chicago.
EDIT: For anyone in this area, Penguicon may be a good location for a meetup. It's a mixed sci-fi/open-source/general-geekery convention in the Detroit area, and just might possibly have at least one guest that LW readers would be interested to meet. I probably won't be there this year, though.
South Side of Chicago
Me too. U of C affiliated?
Yep! I'll get in touch.
I'm in Ann Arbor.
"Me too." I'm in Chicago.
Just updating that I've changed to Nic_Smith.
Near St. Louis.
Bloomington IN, Chicago area native, so I'm back that way fairly often anyway.
Near St. Louis, MO or Ames, IA, depending on the time of year.
I'm Detroit...ish area, and actually I am planning to go to Penguicon this year
I used to live in Ann Arbor, rather recently. I live in Saginaw now.
I can reach Chicago in a day, but Detroit is too far.
Algoma, WI (about 4 hours north of Chicago)
I'm in Peoria, IL. In Chicago pretty often though.
I dub Pavitra's post the beginning of the Great Plains thread.
