I got inspired by the NY meetup post by Cosmos, and I'd love to get a recurring meetup started in St. Louis.

Where: Kayak Coffee at Skinker and Forest Park Parkway, near Washington University.

When: Every Tuesday from 6-8 PM, until and including May 3, 2011 and starting again in September 2011. I won't be in St. Louis for the summer, though of course if enough people will be around the meetups will continue without me.

What: Meet each other and share our thoughts/discoveries on subjects related to LW and/or transhumanism, whatever you find interesting. I'm personally interested in the instrumental value of rationality, philosophy, self-improvement, life hacking, futurism.

I want to use rationality to win more often, and to help the people around me win more often. Let's see where it goes!

I'll make a sign that says 'Less Wrong'. RSVP here - I looking forward to meeting you.

Edit: I meant March, not May.

Update: Our inaugural meetup was excellent. One person RSVP'd and didn't show up, but four others didn't RSVP and did show up. Future meetups are being planned, so leave a comment or message me if you want to get involved.

Update two: We're now meeting every week - I've updated the time to reflect our recurring time. Definitely send me a message if you want to come!

March. Good catch.

I'll be there

Is this group still active in St. Louis? I'm new to LW and would like to participate in a group doing a systematic study of the sequences. Anybody out there?

Thanks again for organizing this - checking in here as a followup. This is Peter; in case my handwriting was illegible, my email address is my username as above at

Good luck with this! If you actually meant May, I might be able to come.

Same here. I'm from the StL area, but I go to school in Iowa, and can rarely get away for a weekend. If these keep going, let me know, I might be able to make it to one!

Alright, definitely. Unfortunately, since I'm from elsewhere and go to school in St. Louis, I probably won't be around too far into May! But perhaps there's overlap. I will let you both know.
