this was such a great event!

I used https://icebreaker.video/ for the first time. the quality of the question-decks vary, but overall I really liked it! it's kind of strange that you don't see both yourself and your interlocutor at the same, but I don't have an opinion on this yet.

the ritual was really well adapted to an online format, and I hope it will continue in the future. we were something like 35 people I think. I feel like a lot of the longtermists that didn't attend really missed out. I wonder why exactly not more people attended, even though the turn-out was in the range I expected. I'm looking forward to the online winter solstice! this is in my top events ever.

I'm grateful to all organizers.

Thank you so much for your kind words, I'm glad that you enjoyed it!

icebreaker.video allows users to use their own questions. I didn't have the time to come up with my own, so I just resorted to the boilerplate ones provided by the website. I wonder if there's a "rationalist ice breaker" list somewhere.

will a more specific agenda for the Lightning Talks & Activities be released?

What chat/meeting tool will be used for this event?
