WHEN: 18 February 2018 03:30:00PM (-0500)

WHERE: Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture

We will be meeting in the courtyard to discuss happiness. It's a word that people often mean different things by, so we are considering tabooing the word to start with and seeing where that gets us.

Upcoming meetups:

  • Feb. 25: Transportation of Priceless Artifacts
  • Mar. 4: Visiting Museums

Heads-up: Meeting starts as normal in the courtyard, but there is an event tomorrow and the preparations might lead to disruptions around 5 p.m. Just for general reference: the backup location is the Luce Center on the third floor - same side of the building as the big spiral staircase, toward the right if you're standing at the top of the staircase facing the outside wall.

We will be meeting in the courtyard to hang out, play games, and engage in fun conversation.

A note: a number of people expressed a lack of enthusiasm for Fun & Games meetups at the Meta Meetup, so we've decided to drop them from 'regular' to 'occasional'. Feedback on this change encouraged.

On a suggestion from the Meta Meetup, we will be meeting in the courtyard to discuss the art of prediction-making and log predictions about the future. Our plan is for the first half of the meetup to be the general forecasting discussion and the second half (after ~5pm) discussion of our forecasts; let us know if you need to leave early and we will try to accommodate you.

We plan to log forecasts in a Google Sheet for easy access by Less Wrong DC members. Please check the mailing-list for the link.
