WHEN: 09 January 2017 06:15:22PM (-0800)

WHERE: 1769 15th St., SF

It's a yearly tradition!

Instead of talking about what we've resolved to do in the New Year, we'll talk about, from looking back at what you actually did in the past year, what someone would think your New Year's resolutions were. Like revealed preferences, we're reverse-engineering what you were trying to do by looking at what you actually did.

This is an interesting exercise, and sometimes helps inform our goals for the next year and years to come.

For help getting into the building, please call (or text, with a likely-somewhat-slower response rate): 301-458-0764.

Format:

We meet and start hanging out at 6:15, but don’t officially start doing the meetup topic until 6:45-7 to accommodate stragglers. Usually there is a food order that goes out before we start the meetup topic.

About these meetups:

The mission of the SF LessWrong meetup is to provide a fun, low-key social space with some structured interaction, where new and non-new community members can mingle and have interesting conversations. Everyone is welcome.

We explicitly encourage people to split off from the main conversation or diverge from the topic if that would be more fun for them (moving side conversations into a separate part of the space if appropriate). Meetup topics are here as a tool to facilitate fun interaction, and we certainly don’t want them to inhibit it.
