A lot of us enjoy reading the Less Wrong Sequences:

...but there's a lot there that might seem confusing. Do we really try to live our lives according to a mathematical formula? Do we really hate frequentist statistics? Who are these mysterious organizations with their logos at the top of the page? What's the deal with the Harry Potter and My Little Pony stuff? How much of that math and science and philosophy is relevant to our daily lives?

This meetup is a chance to try and clear up some of these confusions.

It's also a chance for each of us to explain: what does rationality mean to you? What do you imagine a rational person as being like?
