There are upcoming irregularly scheduled Less Wrong meetups in:

And while not quite a meet-up, there will be a one-day Singularity Summit in Salt Lake City.

Cities with regularly scheduled meetups: New York, Berkeley, Mountain View, Cambridge, MA, Toronto, Seattle, San Francisco, Irvine.

If you'd like to talk with other LW-ers face to face, and there is no meetup in your area, consider starting your own meetup; it's easy (more resources here). Check one out, stretch your rationality skills, and have fun!

If you missed the deadline and wish to have your meetup featured, you can reach me on gmail at frank dot c dot adamek.

To reduce front page clutter, the new plan is for meetups to be initially posted in the Discussion section, and for Anna Salamon to make a promoted post "upcoming meetups" post every Friday that links to every meet-up that has been planned for the next two weeks. [HT: Carl Shulman.] Please let her know if your meetup is omitted. (I'm filling in for Anna this week, as she's directing her powers at the minicamp.)

Please note that for your meetup to appear in the weekly meetups feature, you need to post about your meetup before the Friday before your meetup!

If you check Less Wrong irregularly, consider subscribing to one or more city-specific mailing list in order to be notified when an irregular meetup is happening: LondonChicagoSouthern California (Los Angeles/Orange County area)St. LouisOttawaHelsinkiMelbourne.

Can you please add us as well? link

Thanks! How can we ensure that we don't get missed next time?

EDIT: ignore this, I'm confused, see below.

This was only just decided on the mailing list; I'd have been surprised to see it here before I added the comment asking it to be announced!

OK I cannot guess why this was downvoted!

You are commenting on discussion of this missed meetup announcement, while assuming that it's your announcement that is being discussed. (I downvoted to indicate that.)

Indeed, I scanned over some comments. Sorry!

I don't compile the lists, I just can edit them (your discussion post has 'meetup' tag, so should've been noticed; perhaps it was ignored because there is an entry on the wiki that links to a google group for announcements). This post has instructions for e-mailing missed announcements to Frank. Or you could send me an LW private message.

Superb, thank you!

I missed the last LW meetup for Madison, WI (my city). Does anyone no how it went? Is there interest in having another one? I'd certainly like that.

I second this.

I'm not sure if the Dublin meet is going ahead. I haven't heard any updates, have you?

Sorry I didn't see this before. Yes, it's going ahead. I'm in Dublin right now and look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

I'm going unless it's cancelled, and a Mart person appears to be coming, an actual Dub. Yvain has't said it's cancelled on the page, so we can probably assume it's going ahead.

When will you go up?

My plans are not set in stone, but I'll probably be getting the 10:35 or 11:00 train to Dublin tomorrow. I'm going out in Limerick tonight so if you want to meet come to Costello's or we could meet before that. Phone number in your inbox.

Called you but got no response hopefully my number appeared on your phone. Left a message if it didn't.
