Monthly Mailer for December

November Recap

Ok so this past month we had the book clubs on Superforecasting, Bi-weekly on Liberal Outreach, Nuclear Reactor Tour and Energy Discussion, and 2 Socials. That is 8 very cool times people got together to make the world a little more rational and effectively altruistic! The Nuclear reactor tour and follow-up discussion about renewable energy was a real highlight of the month for me, but then so was also the discussions about Friends vs Acquaintances, Faith Crises, Homelessness, and Healthcare. We also practiced making some predictions after finishing our book club, which was an interesting exercise and is ongoing.

So we had lots of meet-ups in November. With all that said, we are gonna cool down a little bit for Decempear.

This month we are mainly focusing on trying to make an awesome and safe Solstice Event. We will be basing some of the themes and activities of the Solstice off of other rationalist versions. We will likely need some help, so please email me (scel… or Nathan (nathan… if you would like to assist in any way. There is also a Book Club on the Scout Mindset, and A PEAR Dinner Social Thursday the 9th of December. Happy Holidays!
