We'll be meeting at Argo Tea to discuss and practice Fermi estimates. When should they be used, and what considerations go into them? How many piano tuners ARE in Chicago?
Sorry for posting this late, but I have done this as part of an existential risk meetup in San Francisco.
We experimented quite a bit, but here is one general algorithm for making fermi estimates as a group.
Also, if together you guys hear of any good books or new methods for doing large Fermi estimates, please post.
