This time we'll be having a crossover meetup with Roots of Progress, whose posts you may have seen on this site before. Light snacks provided, cash bar.
Time: 1:30 pm, Saturday November 6th. (That's when our reserved area opens but it's just to gather before the brief 2pm talk from Jason Crawford.)
RSVP: Please help with planning by RSVPing at this link.
Background Info: Roots of Progress was started by Jason Crawford to build up a model of the causes of human progress. The ideas have significant overlap with what you might be familiar with from LessWrong and SlateStarCodex. Links:
Jason will kick us off with some brief remarks at about and we'll have time to chat with him and other followers of the site/organization.
To reiterate: The meetup is at The Front Page Pub, 1023 Springdale Rd (far East Austin, near 183 and Cesar Chavez), NOT our usual location. Please follow posted notices about mask policy, and stay home if you are sick.

Why did we wait so long for the bicycle?
And the HN discussion about it, with me mentioning high-karma poster John Salvatier.
