Discussion article for the meetup : Rationality Reading Group

WHEN: 05 March 2018 07:00:00PM (-0700)

WHERE: University of Colorado Boulder Fleming 178

Let’s meet and talk about Rationality topics! I’m calling this a reading group in order to encourage a better understanding and raise the level of conversation that we have at meetups. I’ll assign articles for each meetup well in advance, and while a thorough reading isn’t at all required for you to show up, it is definitely highly encouraged. We’ll start with The Sequences (link below) in ebook order and move on to other articles/books once we’ve exhausted that resource (or our interest in moving further with it, as is often the case). I’d like to have us meet once a week, but I don’t have the capacity to be the sole driving force for that, so I’m starting a bi-weekly schedule. If you’re interested in organizing more of these (or other events related to the group) feel free to message me and I’ll invest whatever powers of the sort I can in you.

You can park for free in Lot 470 next to the building, but make sure you're in those correct spaces (not Lot 415 next to it). I'm open to changing locations for the future; please suggest some if you have some better ideas. I'd like to do occasional more casual locations.
