The mission of the North Oakland LessWrong meetup is to provide a fun, low-key social space with some structured interaction, where new and non-new community members can mingle and have interesting conversations. Everyone is welcome. Yes, that includes you, if you're reading this. Every week, we have a topic, to provide some structure. But we explicitly encourage people to split off from the main conversation or diverge from the topic if that would be more fun for them (moving side conversations into a separate part of the space if appropriate). Meetup topics are here as a tool to facilitate fun interaction, so we certainly don’t want them to inhibit it.

WHEN: Every Tuesday at 6:00, but with the topic waiting until 6:30 or 6:45 to accommodate stragglers.

WHERE: 540 Alcatraz Ave., Oakland; try code zero-five-eight, and if it doesn't work text 978 460 3399 and someone will come down to let you in. (We're in the far back, two floors up. The door is marked.)

Regular Topics

Short Talks (7 minutes on whatever you're thinking about, frequently inspired by something the last talk said)

Projects (bring something, we'll do shared pomodoros and socializing)

Group Debugging (chatting with other people about problems in your life and getting help with them)

Board Game Night

...and several others. Suggest more!

(Please do not put the door code or the unit number anywhere publicly visible. I get enough junk mail as it is.)
