I think we need to put our money and investment where our mouths are on this. Either Less Wrong (or another centralized discussion platform) are very valuable and worth tens of thousands of dollars in investment and moderation, or they are not that important and not worth it. It seems that every time we have a conversation about Less Wrong and the importance of it, the problem is that we expect everyone to do things on a volunteer basis and things will just magically get going again. It seems like Less Wrong was going great back when there was active and constant investment in it by MIRI and CFAR, and once that investment stopped things collapsed.

Otherwise we are just in a situation like that of Jaguar with the cupholders, where everyone is posting on forums for 10 years about how we need cupholders, but there is no one whose actual, paid job is to get cupholders in the cars.

Jay is going to fill us in on his recent App Academy experiences.

Text or call 602 501 9420. We usually meet up in one of the meeting rooms in the sub-basement (yes, there is a basement to the basement) of Hayden library, so it can be hard to find the first time you try and meet up with us.

We will be meeting up at Hayden Library. We're going to try a Saturday morning meetup to mix up the states of mind and see if we can bring some new people out of the woodwork.

We will probably continue what has so far been a productive search for topics of disagreement. We will also likely be discussing the Data Science Coursera study group.

We will be meeting up in Hayden Library at ASU, probably to casually (causally? :P) discuss decision theory.

We will be meeting up at Hayden for a few hours to discuss why we don't see other life in the cosmos and the implications of that.

My phone number is 602-501-9420, text is best!
