Discussion article for the meetup : Less Wrong sydney - Prediction gambles and location testing
Apologies for the short notice on this meeting, but it felt preferable to sort this sooner given we are testing out a new location and time- Norita Cafe & Board Games (It's on level 2 - elevator access is weird, if you think you'll have trouble, contact ahead!). The topic is pretty social- we will attempt to build a small pool of predictions (based off local and global events) as a group, to be trialed over the next couple weeks until the next meeting. Given that this is a trial run style meeting, and the venue stocks tonnes of popular board games, I don't see why we should not consider the advantages of de-railment...
Otherwise, we'll be discussing more administrative matters like formalizing the regularity of meet-ups and fleshing out focused rationality skills workshops as suggested by one of our attendees.
