If you're near Perth, Western Australia, come to our inaugural meetup! From 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM, I'll be at the cafe Tiger Tiger. It's in the Perth CBD, near Perth Station.
To make it easy to find me, I'll have a copy of "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality" near me. You can see the cover art here: http://zerinity.deviantart.com/art/Methods-of-Rationality-259116881 .
This will be a very casual meeting in which people can learn each other's names and interests. I plan to ask people questions like these:
(1) How familiar are you with Less Wrong? (2) What do you hope this group will do? (3) Are there any topics you're particularly interested in?
This event is posted on Meetup: http://www.meetup.com/Perth-Less-Wrong/events/195807142/ , where you can -- if you like -- RSVP.
Hope to see you there!
