Discussion article for the meetup : Boston - Schelling Day
Schelling Day is a rationalist holiday (designed by Ben Landau-Taylor) that is about sharing important and personal things in our lives, and getting to know each other better. The holiday involves a fun ritual for talking about feelings, and a potluck dinner.
Here is Ben's LW post describing Schelling Day http://lesswrong.com/lw/h2t/schelling_day_a_rationalist_holiday/
There is some debate on the most Schelling time to gather and discuss feelings, but the birthday of Thomas Schelling (April 14) seemed like a good choice. Last year's debut of Schelling Day was a great success, and we look forward to holding it again!
The schedule for Schelling Day is as follows:
7pm - arrival
7:30pm - ceremony begins
8:30pm - dinner and socializing
