I will be in Taipei that weekend. Anyone have a travel voucher or want to fly me in from Taiwan? :D
I think my entrance visa to China is $200 since I'm American. Any way around this?
I can't attend, but good luck from Hong Kong! AFAIK this will be the second Asian LW meetup. I was also unsure if HK had enough rationalists for a meetup, but I managed to get 3 of us LWers together, and we enjoyed an interesting chat about OpenCog and other topics... So it's worthwhile even if you can only get a few people. And of course, you have to start somewhere.
I'll be there!
Have been thinking about organizing a meetup myself but always doubted whether Shanghai had enough aspiring rationalists :)
