WHERE: Ross House, 247 Flinders Lane. Level 1, Room 1

NOTE DATE: 12 March is the correct date. (The details previously stated 19 March, before correction.)

THIS MONTH: (1) We look at some of the biases and heuristics that affect our communication with others. (2) A lightning talk or two, at 5 to 10 min each (including questions) on the art of rationality or something to enlighten our understanding of the world. (3) We practise a rationality technique inspired by the CFAR curriculum.

BRING: * An idea or question to share. * Perhaps a snack to share. (Healthy snack choice is optional but welcome.) At about 6:30pm some of us generally head for dinner in the CBD, and you are welcome to join us.

WHEN: 3:30pm to 6:30pm (and then optional dinner). Come early to catch up and maybe grab a tea or coffee, and the meeting proper will begin at 4pm sharp. WHERE: Ross House, 247 Flinders Lane. Level 1, Room 1. Check details closer to the day. If you have any trouble finding the venue on the day, please text or call Chris on 0439 471 632.

WHO ARE WE AND WHY DO WE MEET? The Less Wrong Melbourne Rationality Dojos are self-improvement sessions for those committed to the art of rationality and personal growth. We welcome new members who are interested in exploring rationality. We're "aspiring rationalists" and always open to learn.
