Discussion Topic: The topic du jour is the value of Utilitarianism. Utilitarianism seems to have some problems, and they may not be resolvable. This topic has generated a lot of interesting discussion on Less Wrong - for starters, see the list of articles linked on the lw wiki page.
There will be general discussion too, and there are lots of interesting recent posts (also check out LW's sister site, Overcoming Bias ). But don't worry if you don't have time to read any articles, or even if you've never read any Less Wrong! Bring a friend! The atmosphere is casual, and good, intelligent conversation with friendly people is guaranteed.
I will bring a whiteboard with Bayes' Theorem written on it.
