The meetup will take place in the JetBrains Event Space. We will talk about Double Crux -- a CFAR exercise for resolving disagreements. We also do some practical exercises using double crux. There will be another round of the science-or-fiction game.

As last times, after the meetup we are going for some food and drinks in a restaurant/bar nearby and talk and/or play zendo depending on the mood.

Please read the post about Double Crux on LessWrong http://lesswrong.com/lw/o6p/double_crux_a_strategy_for_resolving_disagreement/ and think of one controversial belief that you would like use to practice the disagreement resolving strategy.

Hello all, new month, new LW meeting. After the nice meeting last month we had an idea of discussing cognitive biases in conspiracy texts. As always everyone is encouraged to suggest own topics or articles.

A discussion of books/podcasts/talks/movies that you thought may be interesting for your fellow rationalists. Of cause you can suggest another discussion topic or activity. This time the meeting starts a bit later so we can go for some food/drinks and socializing afterwards.

Don't forget to think of the summer reading list: what books did you read and like or you want to read and why?

Hello everybody. I think it would be great to have a LessWrong meeting in August. However, since it's holiday/vacation time, I am not sure how many are around so please indicate if will or may join. Activities: - I can give a short talk about deliberate practice and its possible application to applied rationality. - Discussion of interesting books for the summer break: tell about the last book that impressed you, learn about new books from others. - Other contributions are welcomed and encouraged. Please leave a comment if there is a topic or an article you want to discuss. - We can always play Zendo :-)
