We will be meeting in the courtyard to talk about steelmanning - creating a stronger version of an argument against your position to respond to. The Less Wrong Wiki has a page defining the term with a link to the blog post that originated it, and Ozymandias wrote a blog post outlining a couple potential failure modes.

Upcoming meetups:

  • Sep. 25: Outdoor Fun & Games
  • Oct. 2: Math Discussion
