For the record, one suggestion at the meeting* was simple arithmetic problems a la Seth Roberts.

* Yes, I know who made the suggestion; I don't remember his name. I apologize.

Edit: I have been informed that his name is Jeff - thanks, atucker!

Less Wrong DC Experimental Society

During our latest meetup, the DC Less Wrong group has decided that we are interested in experimentally testing various lifehacks on ourselves (on an opt-in volunteer basis of course).

We need two things:

  • Metrics (to actually tell if there's a difference or not, rather than convince ourselves that there is)
  • Things to test

Do any other groups have any measurements that they take to track their various attributes? Anything that they'd be interested in testing?
