Note: This announcement was previously posted here but was not promoted at the time.  I assume this was either because the date was too far out or there was no summary break. Please let me know if I should delete that post or ask for people to downvote it to balance karma or if there is some other reason it or this post was not promoted.

When: Wednesday, May 4th at 7:00 pm

Where: Morrisville Outlet Mall Food Court;  I'll be wearing a Lego evolution shirt and may or may not have a LW sign.

This Google doc contains some preliminary notes as well as my phone number.  I imagine this meeting will consist of introductions and some meta stuff about future meetups.  We have seven people that can attend, including the number three LW poster, Alicorn.  Hopefully there are even more LWers in the area, or at least rationalists that we can reach out to; it certainly seems like there should be, being the "Research Triangle" and all. And feel free to join us if you're not officially inside the Triangle, of course.  If there are a bunch of people in Greensboro or Charlotte, we can probably move the venue further West.

Hope to see you there!

I'll be there!

I shall be in attendance, wearing black, with 3 Pac-Men on my T-shirt. Possibly red flannel over that given the forecast.

Can't wait to meet everyone tomorrow! Hopefully everyone is still planning on attending.

I'm a Triangle resident who recently discovered LW and did not see this post the first time. I am unable to make it tonight but would be interested in attending another meetup (should one occur).

Incidentally, I was unable to view the Google Docs link, because it seems not to be public. I have requested access permission and will see what happens.

Awesome! I don't know why people need to ask for permission to share since it's set to "anyone with the link can view". Anyone know what the deal is?

Me and Ade are still planning to go :)

Despite being an hour late to "my own" meetup, I'm very pleased at the turnout, we had about 4 lurkers that we weren't anticipating, I think 11 or 12 total! Some very interesting people; I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you, and seeing where this goes.

FYI, Alicorn and AdeleneDawner's internet is out at the moment, but should hopefully return at some point tomorrow.

We're back!

Ade, Alicorn, and I are late but should be there at about 7:45.
