Hello Everyone,

The April ACX Meetups Everywhere meetup will be on Thursday April 27th at 7:00 PM.  

LocationUnderground Tap & Grill

Discussion Topic: The Sequences

Before ACX, LessWrong, or EA, there were the Sequences, a series of essays that explore the capabilities and failure modes of human reasoning. We haven't actually discussed this yet, so let's read (re-)read some of them.

The Sequences are a good(and sometimes obtuse) introduction to some of the core ideas of the exceedingly nebulous concept of rationality.  So, if you would like to attend a meetup for the first time and lie vaguely within the sphere of rational-curious, rational-ish, "the Sequences are dumb and I want to tell you why," or "wow, sounds like a neat cult," come by and we can discuss!

Edit: Although the topic is supposed to be the Sequences, the author, Eliezer Yudkowsky, recently made some polarizing comments on AI.  This is inevitably going to come up, so it may be useful to read about this well if you don't already follow these things closely.

Part 1 from Highlights from The Sequences on LessWrong

You are still welcome to attend if you do not make it through all the readings.  If you are a new member and want to attend an event, but are not interested in the Sequences, come anyways; you will not have trouble finding people interested in discussing other stuff!

Optional Readings:
Read beyond Part 1

New Members:
Yes, come!

See you there!
